It's plum on the San Marcos campus..I was there the year they planted them, I think. So unless they've added Sakura since then, it'll be purple blossoms. I think they did it because plum flowers a little later here in Texas, and Sakura doesn't hold up too well. It's more suited to a place like D.C.

I have seen only one in Austin but I'm not sure about San Marcos. It would be great if it is :)

I've seen them planted in some parks in Austin (and of course the Japanese garden), so I know they can grow here.? Saw some driving around last weekend that were beautiful.? I bet San Marcos has some somewhere, but I don't know about the campus.

I don't think there will be cherry blossoms since it'll be held in San Marcos, but then again- I could be wrong?

Annual Sakura Festival

Date April 12 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm
[/b]
Location
Texas State Univ - LBJ Student Center

601 University Drive
San Marcos, TX 78666
[masked]


Admission $3


The Japanese Language and Culture Club at Texas State
University will host the annual Sakura festival.

The event, which celebrates Japanese culture and the arrival of
spring, will cater to anyone who is interested in learning
about the East Asian nation.

?You don?t have to know anything about Japan to have a great
time at the Sakura festival,? said club president Wyatt
Taylor. ?The festival will help people to get a well-rounded
idea of what the culture is like.?

The goal of the festival is to promote awareness of Japanese
culture and traditions throughout the Texas State campus and
community. The event will feature exhibits, activities and
entertainment.

Scheduled attractions include traditional and modern dance
performances, martial arts demonstrations by groups from Texas
State and surrounding areas, and booths with information on
Japanese food, music and customs.

The festival, named after a type of Japanese cherry blossom,
originated as a way to celebrate new beginnings and spiritual
re-invigoration associated with the spring season.
