(4.29) Sakura means ‘cherry blossoms’ and they are a huge deal in Japan. The nation follows the cherry blossom forecast the way we track hurricanes. (Right now it’s peaking in Tohoku, but maybe start heading north to Hakodate.) You can enjoy Japanese culture, food, and whatever this guy is doing, this Saturday at the fifth annual RI Sakura Festival at Classical High. (Parking info etc. at the Facebook event.)
Plan your Saturday according to RI Sakura Festival schedule. Don’t miss your favorite activities and performances. Arrive early to receive special Omiyage (souvenir). Sample unique Japanese dishes and Asian food for lunch. Sign up for Kimono dressing or tea ceremony. Bring some cash to purchase traditional Japanese toys. So excited to see you there.
Food provided by: Haruki, Mom’s Kitchen, Bee’s Thai, Wara Wara, Shanghai, and Okashiya.
11am to 3pm, Saturday, April 29, Classical High School, 770 Westminster Street, (directions)
