Cherry Blossom Parade draws thousands in DC

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade is bringing a finale to three weeks of events as the cherry blossom trees are in full bloom.

This year's parade includes several celebrity performers, including Candice Glover from "American Idol," singer Sheena Easton and hip-hop performer Aaron Carter. Former Washington Redskins cornerback Darrell Green is the parade's grand marshal.

The parade runs from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday on Constitution Avenue and is televised on Saturday afternoon. Organizers say it's also being syndicated nationally.

This year Norah O'Donnell from "CBS This Morning" is co-hosting the parade coverage with anchors from WUSA-TV.
