Bon Odori Festival

For those who have not experienced a bon dance before, picture this: With the sun setting in the west, the ceremony begins as we remember those who have departed. Sakura Ondo and Zumpa are just a few of the traditional songs playing as dancers in their beautiful kimono and happi coats dance around the yagura.

Little children can land their “big catch” at the fishpond. Savory bon dance foods like flying saucers, andagi, yakitori, beef sticks, saimin, and the famous KC Waffle Dog can satisfy your appetite. Bon dances are also a time to catch up with old friends.

We are planning a full program of dancing, entertainment, food booths and taiko drumming. Masks are encouraged and, as always, please be mindful of your overall health before joining us.

Mahalo to all the vendors!
