PLEASE MOTE NEW DATE DUE TO WEATHER: 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 — click here for a scavenger hunt with clues hidden in hand-painted windows in storefronts along Mount Vernon Avenue. Find them all by April 15 and drop your clue sheet in the “tree” at the Pat Miller Neighborhood Square for a chance to win one of five $50 gift cards 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 donation bins inside the businesses with painted windows now through April 6.
