Can’t wait until then? The Cherry Blossom Challenge and donation drive for the Alexandria Boys & Girls Club are happening all week — details below!
The Del Ray Business Association presents First Thursday: A Cherry Blossom Celebration on Thursday, April 13 from 6 p.m. to dusk along Mount Vernon Avenue.
Join the Del Ray community for live music by Mars Rodeo, themed activities, plus a fun scavenger hunt featuring cherry blossom-inspired art by local artists.
Join the Cherry Blossom Challenge — a scavenger hunt with clues hidden in the hand-painted windows in storefronts along Mount Vernon Avenue. Clue sheets are available at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square or at visitdelray.com. Complete the challenge by April 13 for a chance to win $50 to your favorite Del Ray restaurant or retailer.
Participants are encouraged to bring individually-wrapped children’s snacks and juice boxes for the Dunbar Alexandria-Olympic Boys & Girls Club. Donations will be collected at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square, located at the intersection of Mount Vernon and Oxford Avenues, and at totes along the Avenue.
“Thank you to Ting for sponsoring this month’s First Thursday,” says DRBA President Lauren Fisher. “They will be there for us next week too and we appreciate it!”
