Come one, come all! FAMILIES AND FRIENDS WELCOME! PLEASE BRING A DISH TO SHARE: If your last name ends in A-M, please bring a savory dish to share, if it ends in N-Z, please bring a dessert! Bring something to drink as well if you want. Do you have fun memories of Hanami parties in Japan? We do! Every spring, we hope to bring back the fun of a Harukai (our version of Hanami!) by pulling out the blue tarps and picnicking in a beautiful blooming park in the city. Everyone brings a scrumptious dish to share, games to play, and stories to share! We may not have the abundance of gorgeous cherry blossoms, but we sure do have Hanami spirit!
