春ですね～。「第1回トーレンス桜祭り」が開催されるそうです。3月4日午前11時から午後3時までコロンビア公園にて。今年1月21日で創立100周年を迎えたトーレンス市の100周年記念行事の一環だそうです。 "Torrance to hold first Cherry Blossom Festival": Torrance holds the first Cherry Blossom Festival on March 4 from 11 am to 3 pm at Columbia Park, ushering in a year featuring a series of similar events as the city marks its centennial on Jan. 21, 2012.
同桜祭りは、コロンビア公園の南東の角、190番通りとプレーリー街の角辺りで桜の下で行われるそう。 The free festival will be held beneath 110 cherry trees planted in the southeast corner of Columbia Park near the intersection of 190th Street and Prairie Avenue in north Torrance.
The fund for the trees were donated by the Buddhist organization Soka Gakkai International over the last 10 years at the suggestion of a Torrance resident who is a member of the group. They planted 10 trees a year since 2002, so it's the 10th anniversary this year.
It started to bloom a week ago. I went to the park on Feb. 26, 2012, sent my gratitude to Cherry trees, plants, Sun, heavenly phenomena, and the great mother nature and enjoyed the beautiful cherry blossoms.
Cherry trees facing the south near 190th Street were at full bloom, but cherry trees in the center of the area were not blooming, yet on Feb. 26, 2012. It must be spectacular with many more cherry trees blooming around March 4, 2012.
優しい光に包まれた桜の花。いい香りがして癒されました。 Cherry blossoms were enveloped by soft lights. They had beautiful fragrance and healed my soul and spirits.
Columbia Park 4045 190th Street Torrance, CA 90504 @ Prairie Ave.
Free parking space is available, but it could get full during March 4th Cherry blossom festival.
