Japanese Lantern Lighting Festival

This years festival was a huge success. The weather was beautiful which helped in the amazing turn out. This years theme was 'Elements of Tea.' There were a few booths that sampled tea, hot and cold. The entertainment was on the main stage which included dancing and music. There were martial arts demonstrations through out the festival grounds. Booths showcased topics regarding the Japanese culture, ranging from games to pottery. There were also special tours to the Tea House. At dusk the lanterns were light in the Frog pond and the Japanese Garden. It was a very peaceful and beautiful way to close out the festival. Thank you to all of those who participated and attended this event.
