In 2013, we held our 29th year Bon-Odori festival. We estimate about 5000 participants came. Japanese restaurants provided Japanese style lunch boxes  while long lines wanted. People enjoyed many Japanese style arts and crafts.

Kids Taiko ( Japanese drum ) club performance was wonderful. We also had Kendo demonstration this year. And off course we had Tea Ceremony, Calligraphy, Origami and Yukata fitting as well as games outdoor.
