There may be no better way to cap the 30th anniversary of the Cherry Blossom Festival than with a spectacular finale event. This year, the Grand Finale will feature live music by the Crankin Daddies, a family friendly party band that plays hits from the 60s all the way through current chart toppers.
Weve not had a featured band before, so were very excited to have the Crankin Daddies, said Stacy Campbell, director of sales and marketing for the Cherry Blossom Festival.
Held at Wesleyan College, the event also will feature a larger than normal fireworks display, as well as childrens activities including inflatables by Kathys Rock. Wesleyan will be selling picnic-style food and beverages, but folks are welcome to bring their own picnics and spread out on blankets.
Its just going to be a beautiful event because Wesleyans campus is adorned with blooming Yoshinos during the event, Campbell said. Its beautiful, but its also free, family fun that you dont want to miss.
