Brookline Sakura Matsuri: Genki Style @ Brookline High School

This is the second annual Brookline Sakura Matsuri. See photos from last year. This is the third of four local Japanese festivals in May that I'm aware of.

Co-sponsored by the Japanese Program at Brookline High School and The Genki Spark. The Genki Spark are awesome. You should go see them!

In collaboration with Brookline Asian American Family Network, Showa Boston, Brookline Commission for the Arts, New England Japanese American Citizens League, and Amos A. Lawrence School, and William H. Lincoln School.

Update 5/6/13: I'll be volunteering with the JACL from 2-3pm, so stop by and say hi!
