2011 Obon Parade

At the end of a very "work intensive" week, Michael suggested we meet to attend the Obon parade. This was a fun family outing. We picked Jared up and brought him along too. Here are a few photos from the parade. 
Stacia - just one of the crowd

Each float is pulled by long lines of people - some of them a bit more serious about the work than others

"Thank you for your Support ~ Bonds of Friendship" - the community here really does seem to appreciate all the efforts of the base community to be of help

Drummers - watch video to hear

Hydraulics raise and lower parts of the floats to navigate traffic lights etc

Sample of the Evening

Choosing Joy!
