Our city's Third Annual Easter Egg Festival was held today at the park along the Chikuma River in front of our onsen town, Togura-Kamiyamada. Despite Easter being early this year and running up against preschool graduations, we had 120 people turn out. There were lots of smiling children there, so it was a success in my book.
On a personal note, I was limited in how much I could participate this year, but thanks to all of the other volunteers, the event went relatively well. I proposed the event to the Chikuma Int'l Cultural Exchange Assoc. 3 years ago, and have been the Event Chairperson for all 3 years since then. However, all events need to be larger than any one individual to succeed. And this year, the other volunteers really stepped up to make it happen.
