NYC Sakura Matsuri 2011





It's that time of the year again, and this year I'm putting together the Sakura Matsuri gathering at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. We'll find lawn space to set up our blankets, drop our things and enjoy the rest of the day~

Come stop by!


Location:
Brooklyn Botanical Gardens,
900 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11225



When:
The first day, Saturday April 30th, NOON-4pm
((This is a general time when we'll be sitting, you are by no means obligated to stay the whole time))



Activities:
At BBG there will be their usual variety of workshops, performances and etc. here on their website.



Directions:
2/3 to Brooklyn Museum, B/Q/S to Prospect Park



Admission:
Adult tickets are $15, while students with ID $10 each, children under 12 are free.




Meeting place:
We'll be meeting at the entrance on the Eastern Parkway side (nearest to the 2/3 train station), and then after waiting for people (30 mins approx) we'll head on inside and find a spot to settle down in the Cherry Esplanade, basically the center of the Matsuri.

Things to bring?

1. BLANKETS

so you can be able to sit comfortably! I suggest getting a shower curtain or a plastic tablecloth to put underneath, because usually there is wet grass which can seep dirt and stuff through your blankets/sheets and stain those, as -well- as your clothes. You can get a plastic tablecloth at any 99 cent store.

If you are coming -with a friend-, PLEASE bring your own blanket with you! This is to ensure we'll have enough space for everyone on our blankets without crowding on what we'll have and invading personal space.

2. FOOD
It will be a long day in the BBG, and while they have food at their cafe and under the tent, you might want to bring your own. Though BBG doesn't allow picnicking, we've never had a problem with bringing food in on Sakura Matsuri since there's so many people that go. Just make sure that whatever you bring, let it not be huge and noticeable (e.x. a million sandwiches carried in hand-- but it in a bag! xD). Some people may bring something to share with everyone, like grapes, little salads, etc., some people may also bring a little bento for themselves. Also-- a bottle of water!

Just know that the food at BBG tend to be a bit pricey, and that there are barely any restaurants to sit at within the outside area. Some of us tend to go to the city to eat after we're done with Sakura Matsuri, but I won't suggest trying to hold out until we do. You -will- be starving x_x



Dress code?
Lolita! Just look nice and well-groomed. This is a day for relaxing, but being such a big event there will be media and tourists that may stop you, so look good for the cameras, rep your style! Yukatas are welcome as well!



I think I got everything down, questions, comments, gonna come? Let me know below!
