Japanese New Year Festival 2006
Don't miss the Clark Center's third annual Japanese New Year Festival. The gallery, library, and outdoor tents will be filled with traditional Japanese activities from pounding mochi rice cakes to card-matching games, calligraphy activities, koto performances, kimono-dressing demonstrations, and children's games such as hanetsuki (a badminton-like game) and fukuwarai (like "pin the tail on the donkey"). Activities are repeated throughout the day. Bring your friends; bring the kids. Taste New Year's treats and learn about the many traditions associated with this special time of year. Open to the public free of charge.
This event is made possible by support from Union Bank of California and Koda Farms.
