In Japan, aristocrats in the Heian Period (794–1185) would hold flower-viewing parties beneath the cherry trees in bloom. Thus was born the tradition of o-hanami, the custom of viewing (mi) flowers (hana). Over the centuries, the practice spread to every social class.

Not particularly hardy, Japanese cherry trees do not flower easily in our climate. However, our many crabapple trees with their pretty blooms will create an effect that is just as peaceful and romantic.
Several activities are planned to enhance your day. Don’t forget to bring a blanket! (Please don’t bring chairs because they can damage the lawn.)

Space is limited.

ONLY INDIVIDUALS WHO HAVE RESERVED A BOXED LUNCH MAY TAKE PART IN THE PICNIC.
