New York's rite of spring, the Brooklyn Botanic Garden's two-day cherry blossom festival, Sakura Matsuri, is coming. The festival is scheduled for May 2 and 3, with over 50 performances, demonstrations, and exhibits - many of which are new and especially created for the dynamic weekend celebration.

Visitors of all ages are welcome.

Festival hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. All activities take place rain or shine, with indoor locations provided for all activities in the event of rain.

Tickets are available through www.TicketWeb.com; for same-day ticket information, visit bbg.org or call 718-623-7200.

A detailed schedule of the festival is available at bbg.org/sakuramatsuri, and information is available by calling the public events hotline at 718-623-7333.

Admission fees of $12 for adults and $6 for students and seniors will be charged all weekend, including Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon. (On all Saturdays without public programs scheduled, the Garden will continue to extend free admission from 10 a.m. to noon.)
