Kōen-nai No Bonsai: Bonsai in the Park
We are looking forward to seeing you at the Kōen-Nai No Bonsai fundraiser for the Clark Bonsai Collection and the Shinzen Spring Celebration of Cultures in Woodward Park, Fresno, on Saturday, April 22nd. We believe we have put together an entertaining and attractive event that will make the trip worthwhile for all levels of bonsai and culture enthusiasts. We are writing this, however, to advise you that due to circumstances beyond our control, a huge event, a RAD Color Run, has been scheduled for Woodward Park on Sunday, April 23rd. There are many great activities planned for both the Kōen-Nai and Shinzen, but unfortunately, there will be long delays entering Woodward and parking will be extremely limited. Some attendees plan to find parking outside of Woodward Park and walk in to Shinzen.
