It’s blossom month with cherry, almond, and even a wisteria festival. The animals have not been left out with whale and swallow and bunny festivals and a special ceremony for the blessing of all animals. Then there are Chinese lantern, kite, snowboarding and music festivals, plus March is all about a whole variety of St Patrick’s Day parades and festivals. Los Angeles residents and visitors can look forward to a seriously festive month.
