Matsuri '11, A Japanese Festival [217]

3/27/11: Over 1,500 people attended Matsuri '11, A Japanese Festival at St Michael's College in Colchester Vermont.

This is a biennial event cosponsored by The Japan-America Society of Vermont (J-ASV) and Saint Michael's College. Attendees enjoyed varied performances of traditional Japanese music and dance as well as modern pop music, taiko drumming, aikido, and calligraphy.

This year the American Red Cross was also in attendance accepting donations for the Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami. They raised over $2600 with some help from local designer Sachie Kohlman (AKA Sachie Tani) who created a "Hope for Japan" sticker to raise money for her homeland.
