Annual Cherry Blossom Festival held in Wooster Square

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH)– People flocked to Wooster Square in New Haven Sunday for the annual Cherry Blossom Festival.

Several different musical groups played at the festival. Salsa music, a steel band, sounds of swing and the Hillhouse High School marching band.

One thing missing from the Cherry Blossom Festival, the cherry blossoms.

“This is the 43rd annual festival and in many ways bigger and better than ever before even though the cherry blossoms were at their peak about a week ago. We’re celebrating, I guess, then end of cherry blossom season,” said Charlie Murphy, festival co-chair.

Organizers still say the festival was a success. They had more food vendors than before and new participants. They expect the 44th annual festival right around this time next year.
