Minyo Dancing and Lyndon Penner Presentation

Saturday, July 07, 2018

Time(s): 10:00AM - 7:00PM

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. 

Also featured on July 7th, is a performance by the Minyo Dancers. These folk dances are beautiful and graceful and typically audience members are invited to learn a few of the steps. 

Horticulturalist Lyndon Penner will be at the Garden in the afternoon to host a presentation on hydrangea. Did you know that there are around 75 different species found around the world?! Increase your plant, tree and garden knowledge with Lydnon’s fun and entertaining presentation.
