1944 Cherry Blossom Festival Film Footage

It seems like this the Cherry Blossom Festival is a really long way away … especially after this weekends crappy weather. So, in the hopes of bringing a little faux spring to your week, here is a video from the 1944 Cherry Blossom Festival. It’s an interesting window into D.C. during World War II.

Pardon the music, but I can’t seem to find good old movies on YouTube without horrible soundtracks. I would recommend muting it.
