You will be pleased to learn the Cherry Blossom Festival is on tomorrow at Miyazu Gardens & marks the 17th anniversary of the Festival being held in Nelson.
This is our special Springtime Celebration and exposure to Japanese culture, food, music and dance – it’s a celebration, of the gift of the Cherry Blossom Tree and the arrival of spring. In Japanese Culture the cherry blossom is a symbol of the beauty and the transience of life.
This is a great event, it provides a wonderful opportunity, for us all, to come together & to better understand the people who contribute to the diversity of our city. This is a free, happy, family event.
