Hi everyone :)
On Sunday, May 2nd, I would love for us all to meet up to celebrate Sakura Matsuri - the Cherry Blossom Festival - at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden in May! The festival takes place on the first weekend of May for 2-days only, May 1st - May 2nd & runs all day from about 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.http://www.bbg.org/exp/cherries/sakura.html
I have scheduled this event for both days - Saturday & Sunday - the Sunday I can definitely attend at 1 p.m.
I am leaving attendance/time for the Saturday meet-up open & confirming the Sunday 1 p.m. Just note your attendance and leave a comment about what times of the days (Saturdays/Sundays) you would be able to be there.
The best place for us to meet on Sunday will be at the "Cherry Esplanade Stage" because there are some amazing dance/concert programs I do not want to miss that begin at 1:15 and a Samurai Drama that begins at 3:15 :D
Check out the itinerary of events that are going on both days at:http://www.bbg.org/exp/cherries/sakura2010_saturday.pdf
I totally want to attend all of the dance & music performances and definitely want to learn PARA PARA!! (They only do that on Saturday though!) :)
Hope most of us can make it there on a Saturday or a Sunday!
