The National Park Service and U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announce that they expect the cherry blossoms to reach their peak bloom around April 1. Approximately one million visitors are expected to attend this year’s National Cherry Blossom Festival.

Despite the gloomy economic outlook, officials said this morning that the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival might not be badly affected by the recession.

At the National Park Service’s festival preview news conference, the festival’s president, Diana Mayhew, said the economic situation might even be a boost to the 16-day event, which starts Saturday and runs through April 12.

“I think the economic situation is probably going to enhance the attendance,” she said. “Our Web site hits are up about 30 percent. . . . We’re almost sold out for the parade.” The bleacher seats for the April 4 parade are $17 apiece. There are between 8,500 and 9,000 such seats.

She said the festival also is still seeing strong interest from tour groups. “I don’t think anything keeps people away from the cherry blossoms, and the Cherry Blossom Festival,” she said. “It is such an uplifting event. It’s spring. People are looking for a reason to be outside.”
