When: May 3rd starting around noon
Where: At the cherry blossom grove in front of Walker Memorial and Wood Sailing Pavilion along the Charles river near MIT. If we move to a location with more blossoms, we'll update this page.

If you would like to and are able to help mollydb make sangria before hand, please call her ahead of time to organize this.

What Should I Bring?

Ohanami 2007-02.jpg

Ohanami is basically a picnic so bring things you would bring to a picnic.

The weather looks to be beautiful all weekend (65F/18C, sunny, and calm), but it will cool off at night, so plan accordingly! It would be a good idea to bring blankets or tarps to sit on. Also feel free to bring games, musical instruments, delicious things to eat or snack on and drinks to keep you hydrated. We'll be providing drinks as well.

Drinks

In terms of alcohol: Be advised that this is a public place so please take care to be discreet. Obviously, that means no drinking out of marked bottles. If you bring booze, please transfer it into thermoses, cups, or other nondescript containers. We'll have sangria in coolers and cups.

Add things here if you're bringing them:
