Brooklyn Botanic Garden this past weekend for the annual Sakura Matsuri festival (Japanese cherry blossom festival), one of the most popular public events of the year in Brooklyn. There were fascinating activities all over the garden -- from anime standup comedy to classical Japanese dance to karate demonstrations to Samurai drama to flower exhibitions to tea ceremonies. Above is a manga demonstration at the "J-Lounge" with cute inflatable armchairs.
In spite of usually aiming to visit the garden when we can have it all to ourselves, we really has a great time. Highly recommend.
