One of D.C.’s largest spectator events, the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade® runs for 10 blocks along iconic Constitution Avenue. Giant colorful helium balloons, elaborate floats, marching bands from across the country, celebrity entertainers, and performers are invited to perform at the annual spring celebration.
This year’s celebrity talent included:
- 98 Degrees member and “Dancing with the Stars” winner Drew Lachey
- Grammy nominated country singer Jo Dee Messina
- DC-Native and chart-topping rapper DJ Kool
- Breakout star from the most recent season of “America’s Got Talent” Brian Justin Crum
- R&B singer/songwriter Blu Cantrell
- Vocalist Mari
- Glee star Alex Newell
- Miss America Saavy Shields
- And special appearances by Dancing with the Stars’ Carrie Ann Inaba and Good Morning America’s Rob Marciano
- And, of course, CVHS Showband!
The Showband enjoyed the opportunity to perform in a high profile national event and took advantage of its time in the nation's capital by visiting museums and national landmarks.
