Matsuri 2016 Report

Thank you !! in Kabuki style.

Thank you very much for all the help!
Matsuri 2016 was successful.

Before we give you a report, please participate in this very simple survey !

More than 2500 visitors, over 130 volunteers, over 30 vendors attended. We visited 50+ class rooms before the Matsuri educating students about the kabuki theme and working on mask-making projects. We gave 7 scholarships worth a total of $1800. The stage performance and all the booths were busy and lively all through the day. The Japanese delegation group enjoyed themselves talking to visitors who are truly interested in Japan. Many free raffle prizes were given throughout the day.

Here are the chairs of each sections, who worked really hard in the past month or longer. Let's give them a big thank-you !
