While we have had to cancel this year’s Children’s Day Festival held annually in Japantown Peace Plaza, we are putting on a 2-hour Virtual Children’s Day Festival, beginning with a week of Facebook posts with culturally educational posts on the Japanese Girls’ Day (March 3) and Japanese Boys’ Day/Children’s Day (May 5) holidays, culminating with a live online event on Saturday, May 9, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m., broadcast on Facebook Live. The program will include a variety of live and pre-recorded content, including cultural performances, music and storybook readings!
We are currently looking for additional parents and family members to participate in live and recorded storybook readings for the virtual festival. If you have a favorite storybook to read to the community, fill out our online form at https://bit.ly/2020childrensdaystorybookreading.
Although we are required to shelter in place, we hope you can join us for a fun Virtual Children’s Day Festival with the kids!
