6th Annual Blossom Picnic
@ the Heiwa Garden in the Peace Park
Saturday April 9th 11:00 ~ 2:30
In a celebration of spring, the Japanese Garden Society will hold the 6th annual Blossom Picnic on Saturday April 9th from 11:00 to 2:30.
Join us for music, martial art presentations, Japanese home-style sushi lunches, calligraphy and tea ceremony demos, and many more activities.
Jim Raddysh will sing some of his tunes that kids will love; Ruwadzano Marimba Band will inspire your inner rhythms; there will be Shorei-kan Karate and Seven Star Tai Chi demos to watch; and Shinobu Murata will write beautiful calligraphy with sumi ink and brushes; Akiko Otsu will make you an authentic cup of Matcha tea. Be sure not to miss out the samurai theatre put together by the Japanese community on the island, and a lovely choir of the Salt Spring Japanese Singers.
Bring family and friends to this fun gathering!
Don’t forget to pre-order our popular sushi lunches.
The Japanese community is preparing two different flavours: Inari sushi ($5) and Chirashi sushi ($6)
