Japanese Crepe House, 910 E. Redd Road in West El Paso, continues to go beyond serving tasty food by offering classes, movie nights, and now a festival celebrating Japanese culture.
Owner Sharon Hsu said the eatery will host its first Tanabata Matsuri Festival from 6 to 9 p.m. Saturday. The event is free.
"It's going to be a great opportunity to present the history of traditional Japanese festival to people in El Paso," Hsu said in an email to the El Paso Times. "We will have activities such as a kids' goldfish scooping game, Kendo, Taiko drum games, a karaoke competition, origami, Bon Odori dance (and) Japanese street food."
The event will take place outdoors. Attendees are welcome to take their own chairs.
