Sunny Days Ahead- Tanabata Festival

Sunny Days Ahead- Tanabata Festival

Presented by Children's Museum of Houston at Children's Museum of Houston

Children’s Museum Houston and the Consulate General of Japan in Houston would like to invite you to celebrate the Make a Wish!  “Tanabata 七夕” Japanese Star Festival.  As legend is told in Japanese culture, two star-crossed lovers, Vega and Altair, are separated by the Milky Way.  They are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month.  This reunion marks the celebration of Tanabata (meaning the evening of the seventh).  However, the Museum will celebrate this in August.

Event Time:  At 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Good Vibes stage.
