Fall Festival 2016 in Photos

The Greenwich Historical Society holds a Fall Festival every year with a The Morimotosscarecrow competition, activities for kids, and performances. This year the festival was held on October 9 and it had a Japanese theme that related to our new exhibition, “An Eye to the East: The Inspiration of Japan,” which examines the influence of Japanese art and culture in the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Making a fish kiteWe had a samurai scarecrow and samurai face painting; plus kids (and some parents!) decorated fans and make fish tale kites. The Greenwich Japanese School delighted a packed crowd with a performance of song and dance, and the World Seido Karate Studio demonstrated martial arts. The Hapa Food Truck fed the crowd and all enjoyed spending a rainy Sunday on our campus. Until next year!
