Hanami Pikuniku (flower watching picnic)

  • April 19, 2014 · 1:00 PM
  • Queen Elizabeth Park

"hana" means Flower and "mi" is to watch/look
Hanami is a tradition in Japan of watching Cherry Blossoms (Sakura) flowers usually in the spring-time. We will try it here too :-)

We will meet near the Sakura trees on the South-West side of the park.  (If all else fails, just keep walking until you see Sakura Trees :)

Please bring plates and glasses.

 

We need some picnic blankets! Please bring some picnic blankets if you have some extras (or a tarp).

Everybody is expected to bring something (food or drink)! It doesn't have to be a lot, just enough for everybody to get a taste. Please say what you will bring in your RSVP so we can avoid 20 orders of sushi.

If you have some fun picnic toys (like a frisbee or a football) feel free to bring it

I will send out a message if it is going to be cancelled because of rain on the morning of April 19th. Lets hope for some nice weather!

      Yes, it is still going on. I've sent an e-mail out... Yes it does look like it might rain a little later. I'm hoping it's very light rain. I will bring a tarp which we can use to stay dry.
