Ohana (flowers) mi (look at) is a traditional festival in Japan to celebrate the arrival of spring. There will be lots of eating, drinking, and chatting done under the beautiful cherry blossom trees.

This is our 3rd Ohanami Festival. Hope to see you all there!

The weather looks like it will be clear and sunny, but a bit chilly (13C/56F). Bundle up a bit and bring sunglasses!

When: Saturday April 26, 2008 from 13:00 until we get too cold.
Where: At the cherry blossom grove in front of Walker Memorial along the Charles river near MIT
Who: You! Feel free to bring family and friends!

If you would like to and are able to help Mako make sangria before hand, please call Mako to organize this.
