Figured since there's quite a few anime geeks and we had the Mitsuwa outings there would probably be some interest in this.

Apparently there will be a lot of japanese food, taiko drums, crafts you wouldn't normally find in shops, and exhibits on bonsai, ikebana (flower arranging), kaminingyo (paper dolls), calligraphy, brush painting, and silk flowers.

Not sure if anyone wants to do an official meetup for this or what times would be good, considering how soon it's coming up, but maybe we could get something organized if enough people are available.

Tis a little short on time but I like the idea as long as we don't have to have a komoto I probably can go :-)

I really want to go, but I'm broke as a joke this weekend. Tell me how it is. I wonder if they did there tanabata celebration last month or if they do it in august.

I'm not certain that even I'm going yet. It kinda came as a surprise to me too. There's a good chance I'm going to drive downstate Saturday to spend time with my cousins, and getting back kinda late on Sunday, so that doesn't leave much time to go.
