Coolers and Chairs
Coolers are not allowed on the shuttles or in the park. If you bring a cooler in, you will be asked to remove it.
While we realize some people might need chairs for health reasons, we ask that all others refrain from bringing chairs into the park. Should you bring a chair in you will likely be asked to remove it out of consideration for other guests. Individuals with disabilities who require chairs are not subject to above. Please let us know if we can assist.
Please be sure to wear your sunscreen and bring a good supply. No umbrellas or tents are allowed in the stage viewing area.
We Are Pet-Friendly!
The Cherry Blossom Festival is a Pet-friendly event. When considering transportation, if it is possible to have someone drop you and your pet off within walking distance of the park it would likely be easier for all. If you would like to ride the shuttle with your pet, we ask that you use good judgment at all times and consider your pet’s safety and comfort level as well that of other guests. If your pet is stressed by motion sickness or closed, crowded spaces, consider coming early and walking to the park from Marist. If a guest is intimidated by the presence of an animal, no matter how well-behaved the pet is, we ask that you be considerate of others’ concerns. Safety is our highest priority. Festival officials, including drivers, reserve the right to refuse entry to a pet for health or safety reasons.
Service animals as always, are welcome.
Join us Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 6 pm at the Children's Healthcare Kidz Zone for inflatables, face painting, sand art, mining for gems, jewelry making, teen makeup, virtual reality rides, bungee jumping, mini golf and much more!
