Cherry Blossom Festival

May 14, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Each spring RIPA’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival ushers in the warmer months, and gives visitors the opportunity to appreciate the Park’s spring beauty. Set along the backdrop of the Hell Gate Bridge and the Urban Farm, the Festival welcomes the Park’s cherry blossoms with live music, performances, games, exhibitions, face painting and more, inspired by Japanese culture. This year, in conjunction with the Cherry Blossom Festival, RIPA will host its annual FLOW Grand Opening, which features five new site-specific installations by artists, in partnership with the Bronx Museum’s Artist in the Marketplace program (AIM).
