Orange County’s only Cherry Blossom Festival returns for a celebration of Japanese and Japanese-American culture in Southern California. This year’s festival is expanding to three days, with the newly added Sakura Night Market on Friday and Saturday night. Bring the whole family for a fun-filled weekend of music, dancing, cultural exhibits, martial arts, crafts, games and some of the best Japanese food and drink vendors in the region.

Huntington Beach Central Park is one of the largest city parks in Southern California and home to many of the city's major attractions and a pair of inviting restaurants. Boasting an expansive 354 acres punctuated with mature trees, rolling lawns, and placid lakes, Central Park is the region's largest and most diverse greenbelts. The park is vegetated with native plants and wildlife. Thick forests encircling the park are supplemented with Australian trees, particularly eucalyptus.

The Festival will celebrate traditional Japanese arts, traditions, music, food and crafts, while embracing contemporary music, art and the Japanese youth culture. The Festival will also celebrate the rich history of Huntington Beach’s Sister City relationship with Anjo, Japan, set in Beautiful Central Park, while the Cherry Blossom trees are in full bloom.

Parking
Huntington Beach Central Park is behind Library. This park is large and could be confusing. There is a lot of parking, but looking for the festival seems hidden.

Editor Tips
There will be food trucks but expect to wait in a line. The stage is huge with one pof the best sound systems, so you will hear music through the festival. But the stage show is worth going to - great entertainment. Bring a hat for protection from the sun.

Sister City Anjo, Japan
A Sister City relationship was initiated with Anjo, Japan in 1982 and the program officially incorporated in 1992. The Sister City Association of Huntington Beach is a nonprofit citizen-run organization, which successfully operates annual programs of international goodwill between Huntington Beach and Anjo, Japan. The sister city movement is an outgrowth of then President Dwight Eisenhower's People to People concept created in 1956.

The idea is that it is the interaction of people--not governments--of different countries and diverse cultures that can put the world on the path to enduring peace. The local Sister City Association has been involved in a variety of capacities, including the selection of Assistant English Teachers to teach in Japan, and exchanges of art and music. Recent program from Anjo include koto players, a dance group and taiko drum performers. Many Anjo adult delegations have visited Huntington Beach and a number of Huntington Beach individuals and several organized groups of local citizens have visited Anjo.
