Japanese Festival celebrates 20 years of friendship May 17

TEMECULA – On May 17, the City of Temecula cordially invites residents to celebrate 20 years of friendship with sister city, Daisen, Japan.

For more than two decades, residents of both Temecula and Daisen have traveled across the world to understand, enjoy, embrace, and respect each other’s cultures.

The Japanese Festival will encompass and celebrate pieces of the Japanese culture for all to enjoy. There will be traditional food, entertainment, kid’s crafts, games, and demonstrations. Come by Temecula City Hall between the hours of 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to say hello to guests from Daisen.

This year’s Japanese Festival will also be the only opportunity to purchase tickets in person for Temecula’s preeminent anime art exhibit and family-friendly cosplay event – the Art Cosplay Expo.

Online sales will begin May 23. The Expo will be held in the Fall of 2014 at the Jefferson Recreation Center (The JRC), located at 41375 McCabe Court.
