Please join the Minnesota Alumni Chapter for our Summer Bon Voyage event as we welcome home the Spring 2019 Voyagers, send off the Fall 2019 Voyagers, and reconnect with fellow SASers.
For this event, we will be going to the Japanese Obon Festival on the grounds of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory. The Obon Festival encompasses Japanese tradition—through music, dance, crafts, martial arts and lanterns. We will meet in the upstairs area of the Pavilion at 7:00 PM and walk together to watch the lantern lighting ceremony which starts at dusk. The festival starts at 3:00 PM so feel free to come early and enjoy!
Admission is $5.00 per adult (13+), $3.00 per child (ages 3-12) and seniors (ages 65+), and free for children under 3. Tickets can be purchased the day of the event. Free shuttle bus service will be available from a staffed off-site parking lot at the District Service Center located at 1930 Como Ave.
