Chrysanthemum Show, Koi Auction Scheduled for Japanese Garden
A pair of annual events will once again be held in the Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden at CSULB this fall.
Admission is $10 for adults, $9 for seniors and $8 for Japanese Garden members. Children 12 and under will be admitted free.
This year’s Koi Auction will be held on Sunday, Nov. 20. This annual event is conducted by members of the Zen Nippon Airinkai Koi Club of Southern California, and Japanese Garden staff and volunteers will begin with a preview of the colorful koi fish, also known as carp, at 11:30 a.m., followed by the noon auction. The auction will continue until all the fish are sold or 4 p.m.
The auction is the perfect opportunity for people interested in owning koi to gain an introduction to the art and science of koi keeping. Young fish culled from the garden’s pond may sell for under $5, while many large koi are sold at reasonable prices. Attendees receive bidding cards to purchase their koi, with purchasers receiving a brochure titled Caring for Your Koi.
Admission to the auction is $5 for adults, $4 for seniors, $3 for Japanese Garden members and free for children 12 and under. Proceeds from the sale benefit the Japanese Garden.
The Earl Burns Miller Japanese Garden is located on Earl Warren Drive, directly across from Lot 16 on the Cal State Long Beach campus. For more information on either the chrysanthemum show or koi auction, call 562/985-8885.
