Although the spring weather is welcomed in the District, the pollen from the flowers and trees has many Washingtonians sneezing and coughing. Still, if you're feeling a little under the weather, grab your box of tissues and head on out anyway. Many of D.C.'s local celebrities are doing just that all around town. See who hasn't let hay-fever season stop them:
