Cherry Blossom picnic (exact date TBC)

  • Katherine Mansfield Park Fitzherbert Terrace Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED FROM OUR ORIGINAL PLAN OF SATURDAY 19 SEPTEMBER. PENDING WEATHER AND BLOSSOMS IT IS CURRENTLY TENTATIVELY RESCHEDULED FOR  SUNDAY 27 SEPTEMBER.

The Cherry Blossoms donated by Sakai City in Katherine Mansfield Park never give us much warning for a get-together but each September WSA holds a cherry blossom viewing picnic.

BYO Picnic, come along and meet us in the BBQ area at Katherine Mansfield Memorial Park, Fitzherbert Terrace, Thorndon - hope to see you there for a catch up and some nibbles under the cherry trees donated by Sakai. 

This year we are trying something a little different - following our successful Japanese "bento" (lunchbox) making class earlier this month, we are holding a Japanese "bento" competition, with a prize for best bento. Judging criteria TBC but bonus points for featuring either Wellington or Sakai in your bento somehow! Staff from the Japanese Embassy will serve as judge.

We will confirm the date closer to the time (it may be the following week), as the whole idea of a cherry blossom picnic (or "hanami") is dependent on there being cherry blossoms to view!

Family, Friends and Children all welcome :)
