(All ages) Celebrate this traditional festival with song, origami, story-telling and a planetarium show. Hiroya Tsukamoto, a one-of-a-kind composer, guitarist and singer-songwriter from Kyoto, Japan, will perform in the lobby while guests dress in kimonos and try origami. After a short break for tea and egg rolls, guests will enjoy a planetarium show in the theater that explains the astrological story tied to this celebration. Then everyone will go to the Franklin Park pond to release floating lanterns. A peaceful, magical and cultural evening for all generations.
