Bon Odori this Saturday and Sunday

This Saturday and Sunday in the Central District the Seattle Buddhist Church will be celebrating Bon Odori. This means people will be dancing in the streets, dressed in kimonos, around a taiko drum to traditional Japanese music. The dances are participatory, and you don't have to be dressed up to join in. Meanwhile, there will be little stalls manned by church ladies selling traditional Japanese snacks, like cold soba noodles and (at the gigantic grill behind the church) homemade teriyaki. Inside the church gym are cultural displays, and there will be a jazz band playing each night in the beer garden. Parking is easy, it's not too hard to find (14th Street between Jackson and Yesler) ... come on down! I like to go every year, and I'll be there for certain on Sunday around 5.
