Last Word on the Cherry Blossom Festival: RI Parents Network Kids Bloomed

Not all the news was bad on Cherry Blossom Festival Day. Cultural events in Four Freedoms Park were executed to perfection, and better late than never, the Rosevelt Island Parents' Network reported a happy and successful family picnic that included their regular, monthly, Craft With Kids.

RIPN's leaders shared "...a picture collage documenting the beautiful paintings and artworks created by lovely children on the beautiful day of Cherry Blossom Festival" with The Daily.

"Huge thanks to Kankana and Dawn for organizing and volunteering at the RIPN event table," a note added, "and huge thanks to all families that stopped by our table and enjoyed making art!"

We're happy to let that be the final word on the 2019 Cherry Blossom Festival.

“More Or Less I Am” Celebrates Whitman’s 200th Birthday in New York City

“Whitman’s own manic enthusiasm might be required to describe the joyous jamboree that occurs when you combine a fiddle, flute, cello, guitar, and steel drum with readers from the audience, an opera singer, the sounds of jets flying overhead and bells ringing at Riverside Church, the guy who played Brother Mouzone on The Wire, and … Continue reading “More Or Less I Am” Celebrates Whitman’s 200th Birthday in New York City →
