Wish Upon a Star

This weekend, you have an extra-special opportunity to wish upon a star at the Huntington Library and Gardens.
Tanabata
July 6 (Sunday) 1:30 – 3 p.m.
Celebrate Tanabata, the Japanese Star Festival, with children from the Kodomo No Ie preschool in San Gabriel. According to ancient legend, Tanabata tells the tale of two stars, Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair), who are separated by the Milky Way and can only meet once a year, on the seventh day of the seventh month. To mark the happy event, children are invited to write their wishes on strips of colored paper and tie them to bamboo where the wind can carry them to the sky. Origami crafts will also be offered. General admission (children under 5 enter free). Japanese Garden
Iris and I have already picked our wishes.

See the Huntington calendar for address and contact info.
