The National Cherry Blossom Festival has made tickets available for reserved grandstand seating at its parade which is scheduled to take place on April 9, 2022.
The festival is returning fully in-person next year, with its lively parade spanning 10 blocks along Constitution Avenue Northwest.
The public will be able to view parts of the parade for free on a first-come-first-serve basis.
“Grand colorful helium balloons, elaborate floats, marching bands from across the country, celebrity entertainers, and performers burst down the Parade route in a grand spectacle of music and showmanship seen only once a year during the Festival!” organizers of the event said in a statement.

In early November, it was announced that the festival will be held all in-person in 2022, after it was affected by the COVID-19 pandemic in the past two years.
“DC is open and that means that the National Cherry Blossom Festival is back in person,” DC Mayor Muriel Bowser said in her announcement. “In neighborhoods across DC, the cherry blossoms have been a bright spot during the past two years, a beautiful reminder of hope and renewal. Now, we can’t wait to welcome visitors back to Washington, DC to experience the full in-person 2022 National Cherry Blossom Festival and all that DC has to offer.”
The festival will run from March 20 to April 17 in 2022. Click here to purchase tickets for the parade.
