Hanamatsuri celebrates the birth of Siddhartha Gautama, who later became Shakyamuni Buddha, in Lumbini Garden. This holiday is commonly known as Hanamatsuri, or Flower Festival. It is also called Kan-bustu-e, or Bathe the Buddha gathering, because at this observance, a statue of the baby Buddha stands in a flower-covered shrine in a shallow bowl filled with sweet tea.

When: April 12 at 10:30 am
Where: MBT Facebook Page
