On Saturday, April 30, the Nippon Club of Raleigh celebrated Kodomo-no-Hi, Children’s Day. Activities included Mochitsuki and tasting mochi with different toppings, flying Japanese Kites, making Origami Kabuto (Samurai helmet), a Taiko performance, and a Taiko workshop for children. It was a fun day!!

It was a busy week-end for Triangle Taiko. First, we had 2 stages at Live & Local: Earth Day 2016 on Saturday. The audience members were great!! They stayed the entire time with the cold windy day and cheered us on. Thank you so much for your enthusiastic appreciation. We hope everyone got their free tree.

On Sunday, we had the Raleigh Rock’n’ Roll Marathon, which is always so much fun to be a part of. The staff is always so friendly, and the runners are amazing. A former Triangle Taiko member was in the marathon (Go Jeremy!) along with Kimberly’s husband (Go Sean!). So we had a lot of fun cheering everyone on. Although we are pretty sure the runners cheered us on just as much.
