Katie will be among the celebrities to greet over 100,000 spectators. Loved by all ages, this parade is in its 97th year and celebrates the 3,000 Cherry Trees in full bloom that were a gift to the people of Washington from Tokyo in 1912.
Giant inflatable balloons, marching bands, and performers will burst down Constitution Avenue in an energy-filled spectacle of music and showmanship seen only once a year during the National Cherry Blossom Festival. Miss America 2009 Katie Stam will be singing "Route 66."
The 2009 Parade of the National Cherry Blossom Festival will be broadcast on ABC7 (WJLA) and News Channel 8 in the Washington, D.C., Maryland and Virginia areas from 10 a.m. - Noon EST.*
