Broaden your horizons at the St. Bernard Parish Library on Saturday, May 19th by bringing your family to the Children’s Day celebration sponsored by the Japan Society of New Orleans. Children’s Day is known as kodomo no hi in Japan and is an annual festival that celebrates children’s happiness and serves to foster their creative growth. This free event begins at 10:30 a.m. with Japanese stories and songs with arts and crafts to follow. All materials will be provided.
The Japan Society of New Orleans was founded in 1928 to promote friendly relationships with Japan through the study of Japanese art and culture as well as social and trade contacts between the two countries. Their goal is to provide a formal organization to bring together the leaders of our community who have a vital interest in, and appreciation for, the history, culture, government and economic achievement of Japan, and to provide and encourage understanding, commerce, and good-will between the peoples of Japan and the United States.
