The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens are having their annual Sakura Matsuri at the end of the month, and to celebrate, the lolitas of NYC will be getting together Saturday, April 28th--and hopefully, so will the Philly lolitas! Details of where to meet and what time are still in the process of being planned, but mark the date on your calendar and don't forget!
Bring a sheet or picnic chair to sit on if you can (the more, the better, because nothing ruins a fun day outside like grass stains on your skirts), and comment if you'll be bringing anything like food, beverages, or plates/cups/etc. Try not to bring anything messy, i.e. cupcakes are preferable to sloppy joes, iced tea is preferable to orange soda. And remember, the trains WILL be packed and the lines WILL be long, so try to not come late. Admission and other details can be found at the garden's official site.
