Big crowds for the Cherry Blossom Parade.

District of Columbia police are warning of street closures and possible traffic delays this weekend due to the National Cherry Blossom Festival and events at the International Monetary Fund and World Bank complex.

The Cherry Blossom Parade is being held Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. along Constitution Avenue. The parade route stretches from 7th street to 17th street in northwest Washington.

Meanwhile, big crowds are expected around the Tidal Basin where the cherry blossom trees are in full bloom.

Roads will also be closed for the Sakura Matsuri Japanese Street Festival. That includes Pennsylvania Avenue between 9th and 14th streets, as well as side streets.

Events at the IMF and World Bank will close 19th Street from Pennsylvania Avenue to G Street through Sunday evening.
