|About the Event
For 33 years, Sister Cities of Greenfield has been sending delegations of students and teachers to our Sister City, Kakuda, Japan. Thanks to generous support from the city, from Hitachi Astemo, and from activities like the 5K Walk/Run, students have been able to travel to Kakuda for much less than the actual cost of airfare and lodging. Likewise, Sister Cities of Greenfield has hosted dozens of Japanese student delegations. These exchanges have enabled hundreds of individuals to personally appreciate the fact that different races and nationalities don't matter much when true friendship develop.
Parking is available on the local streets near the Sister Cities Park, which is just south of 116 S. State Street. Additionally, there is a free city parking lot at the corner of S. Pennsylvania and E. South Street.
For GPS, use the address 111 S Pennsylvania Street.
