WASHINGTON (WJLA) - Washington is celebrating the first weekend of the National Cherry Blossom Festival with a variety of events. Peak bloom is expected to be April 4.

The Tidal Basin was buzzing Saturday with people jogging, paddle boating, and taking in the sights. There's not much color, though; peak bloom isn't expected until April 4.

“You can see the buds on them. They're ready for the warm weather like we are,” says one visitor.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival runs through April 13.
