Enjoy Japanese folk dancing and drumming in the evening twilight at the Tacoma Bon
Odori street festival on Saturday, Aug. 2.
The annual celebration features dancers wearing colorful cotton yukata and other
traditional garb performing under hanging lanterns outside the Tacoma Buddhist
Temple. Everyone is encouraged to join the easy-to-follow dances.
The free festival
also marks the return of two crowd favorites: drum groups Fuji Taiko, of
Tacoma, and Matsuri Taiko, of Seattle.
