April 8 | Socal's Biggest Japanese Spring Festival Is Coming To Santa Anita Park

Welcome Spring with Japanese traditions and food! The 23rd Annual Tokyo City Cup and Japan Family Day is happening at Santa Anita Park on April 8, 2018. The $100,000 Stakes Race celebrates the relationship (since 1995!) between Santa Anita Park and Tokyo City Keiba (TCK)’s Oi Racetrack. It's an event that is fun for everyone with activities that help introduce Japanese culture and traditions and unique Japanese food like takoyaki (my fave!) and okonomiyaki! And since it's at the Santa Anita Park, there will be some horse racing too! It's a sight to see!

Totally an event I recommend for anyone that is into Japanese culture or just wanna find out more about it!

There is also an estimated 15,000 + attendees. Now that's a party.
