Natsumatsuri Family Festival is a gold mine of performances, crafts and activities for anyone with an interest in all things Japanese. Along with a traditional community Obon dance, there'll be music by Japanese folk group Minyo Station and a joint performance by TaikoProject and Latino fusion band Quetzal. Other attractions include a family art project inspired by the museum's current exhibitions (create an artwork about your family using light-sensitive paper), origami lessons, martial arts demonstrations, a samurai sword lecture and, yes, a karaoke open mic.
