Japan Festival will be June 7, 2014 in Cambridge

Looks like there's been a bit of a shake up over at the Japan Festival in Boston. I had heard rumors that it might not happen this year but it seems they teamed up with the Cambridge River Festival, so the 3rd annual Japan Festival in Boston will be in Central Square, Cambridge on Saturday, June 7th. I'm unclear if the Japan Festival will be in one place or spread through. The Cambridge River Festival will be on Mass Ave. and Sidney St.

I received the following email from festival organizers yesterday. The vendor application process is a little confusing so read carefully if you apply.
