Sakura Matsuri NYC 4/30 - 5/1

Are you dying for stroll in the park amongst flowers just in bloom? The Brooklyn Botanical Garden celebrates the blooming of the cherry blossoms with Sakura Matsuri this year on April 30 and May 1st.

Sakura Matsuri is an annual weekend event that lets the public get a sample of the wide spectrum of Japanese culture, such as: taiko drumming, tea ceremonies, origami and ikebana workshop, and most recent an area full of events (cosplay, comedy skits, voice acting, etc) that caters specifically to anime fans.

Whether you want to see pretty flowers, just lounge on the lawn with a bottle of sake and friends in true Japanese fashion or need an excuse to plan your first summery Lolita outfit of the season, Sakura Matsuri will be an event for you. 

Note: If you are a someone who prefers to see cherry blossoms before anyone else, pay attention to the weather as they tend to be fickle things and can bloom early (like last year).
