  • Can I bring my pet to the National Cherry Blossom Festival? Yes! For the last couple years, the festival has teamed up with Mars Petcare to provide pet comfort services, like water stations and shaded areas. However, please be prepared to clean up after your pet, have your pet on a leash, and make not that pets should be left at home during the Petalpalooza fireworks celebration. This is for their comfort as much as yours!
