Umpteen competitions including singing, fashion shows etc., will be organised during the three-day event.
Just a few years since its conceptualisation, the Cherry Blossom Festival has become a hit in Shillong drawing a large footfall of visitors every year.
In 2020, however, the festival was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
