It's the last weekend of April. So, what's going on? Lynn Jacobson, the features editor of The Seattle Times, told us about events to check out this spring weekend.
Seattle Cherry Blossom and Japanese Cultural Festival
You can't miss them in Seattle in spring - clouds of pink cherry blossoms, hovering over streets and parks. This annual festival celebrates the return of spring, along with the threads of Japanese art and culture that are woven into the fabric of the city.
Kelsey Creek Farm Sheep Shearing
Children will love this: Sheep shearing, spinning demonstrations, inflatables, 4-H exhibits, tractor rides, pony rides and more, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at one of Bellevue's most charming parks, Kelsey Creek.
Skagit Valley Tulip Festival
A colorful carpet of blooms unfurls each year at this time between Mt. Vernon and La Conner, Wash. This weekend will be prime viewing time.
