    go on a picnic under the blossoms

    "People hold parties or go on a picnic under the cherry blossoms."
    Is this sentence correct? I wonder if people go on a picnic
    under the cherry blossoms.
    How about:
    1. People hold parties under the cherry blossoms or
    go on a blossom-viewing picnic.
    2. People hold parties under the cherry blossoms or
    go on a picnic to view cherry blossoms.
    Thank you.

    Re: go on a picnic under the blossoms

    I'd use 'blossom'. As this is a culture-sepcific thing, I'd think it might work best if we use the cherry blossom as a time rather than a place:
    People hold parties/ have picnics when the cherry trees are in blossom.
