WASHINGTON -- Saturday's National Cherry Blossom Parade drew tens of thousands downtown to see singing kids, martial arts, skating D.C.'s roller derby girls, elaborate floats and Azalea Trail Maids in enormous pastel dresses. Debbie Gibson, Katie Couric, Marie Osmond and Miss America 2012 Laura Kaeppeler were among the celebrities participating in the parade.
The cherry blossoms might already have lost most of their blooms last month, but it was still a perfect day for the festivities, as you can see in the slideshow below.
The 2012 National Cherry Blossom Festival ends on April 27.
