Come celebrate Sakura Matsuri the weekend of April 28 and 29 at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden.

You know it’s spring when the pink, peaceful cherry blossoms bloom at the garden.

Officially known as “Hanami,” the garden’s beautiful 220 cherry trees — the largest collection outside of Japan — are expected to start blooming around April 2, reaching their peak around May 1, just in time for the garden’s spectacular weekend-long celebration of Japanese culture, food, dance, and music that’s always one of the season’s biggest bashes.

Sakura Matsuri on April 28 and 29, 10 am to 6 pm. Tickets $25, $20 for seniors and students, and free for member and children under 12.

Brooklyn Botanic Garden [1000 Washington Ave. at Eastern Parkway in Crown Heights, (718) 623–7220; www.bbg.org].
