It looks like 2018 is going to be a Dog of a Year.
The Japanese American National Museum celebrates the Year of the Dog with a free day-long festival. Art projects that visitors can craft throughout the day include an origami barking dog, a celebratory hat that looks like a dog, and wall hanging of a Japanese daruma, a doll that helps you set and meet goals.
Other fun activities include a chance to meet dogs available for fostering and adoption, a Stan Sakai drawing demonstration and book sSigning and a candy-making demonstration. Museum visitors can sample Lucky Soba noodles and a selection of traditional Japanese New Year foods, explore the museum, see a taiko drum performance and a mochi demonstration, and pose in the photobooth.
