Tanabata, or star festival, is being celebrated at Japanese Garden. During this time of the celestial calendar Vega and Altair, know in Japan as the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi, meet in the milky way. Guests are invited to hang wishes on the Garden trees in order that these Gods may show favour upon them. 

The Garden's hosts and hostesses will assist in this activity and other on your visit to the Garden.
