Otsukimi Moon Viewing Festival - Sky Gazing TX Astronomical Sc
I originally scheduled this event in September - however it was moved due to rain. I no longer will be able to attend since I will be in Mexico. I will NOT cancel because more people signed up that can actually attend on a Saturday -
Please Note - SUE LUI volunteered to Host this event since I will not be in town.
Celebrate the full autumn moon at Klyde Warren Park with a picnic under the stars.
Enjoy Japanese music and dance performances, along with sky-gazing and moon activities with the Texas Astronomical Society. Meet and greet local rabbits that are up for adoption with Texas Rustlers Rescue. Participate in traditional Japanese art forms including calligraphy, tea ceremony, ikebana, and haiku poetry.
