You might think you're suddenly in Japan at the BBG's legendary spring festival celebrating the peak of the cherry blossom season. The Japanese tradition of Sakuri Matsuri (cherry blossom festival) celebrates spring, the arts and the great outdoors with a slew of cultural arts and general merry making. On tap at this year's fest, the nation's largest happening in a public garden, are performances like taiko drumming, samurai sword fighting and classical dance; demos in such Japanese arts as ikebana (flower arranging) and tea ceremony; a collection of vintage kimonos and an imaginative cosplay fashion show; and, for kids, hands-on workshops (in the Osborne Garden) where they'll learn manga, origami and even the art of making spring pinwheels. All ages.
