There will be a Silent Auction and a Wine Pull, along with music by guitarist Ray Longo. Enjoy delicious Japanese food catered by Sato Restaurant. You’ll get update on the schedule for the 5th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival and the Japanese Garden in Delaware Park, including how to become one of the honored guests at this year’s special Pop-Up Japanese Tea Ceremony during Full Bloom.

If you are curious about Japanese traditional folk art, meet and talk with Josh Rice, a local artist who has recently returned to WNY from an in-depth apprenticeship of Traditional Cart Puppetry (Kuruma Ningyo) in Japan.  Josh studied with Koryu Nishikawa V, (Fifth-generation traditional Japanese master puppeteer of Hachioji Kuruma Ningyo Theater, and designated National Intangible Folk Treasure of Japan,) Josh will give a presentation on traditional cart puppetry on Family Day, May 6,  at the Cherry Blossom Festival.
