The 12th annual Monterey Park 2009 Cherry Blossom Festival will be held on April 18 & 19,2009 at Barnes Park, located at 350 S. McPherrin Avenue; Monterey Park, CA. I'm thinking of heading out there on Sunday. There will be traditional Japanese dancing, performance on the taiko drums, observing the mastery and various skills of martial arts, participating in the ancient art of the tea ceremony, and buying hand made crafts or food with an Asian flair. Other highlights of the festival will include games and crafts for children, and numerous cultural displays.
