Come celebrate the sights, sounds and dancing of the 86th Seattle Bon Odori. This annual event is a centuries old Japanese Buddhist festival which celebrates and honors the lives of deceased family and friends. Expect to see taiko drumming, martial arts demonstrations, and history on display as well as street dancing to traditional Japanese folk tunes and many food booths. Psst…this is considered a happy time as we remember the contributions of those who came before us with a deep sense of gratitude and thanksgiving.
Dance practice will run July 9-12 & 16-17 from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the temple gym. But you don’t have to attend practice to join in the dancing.
Saturday: 4 p.m.-10 p.m.
Sunday: 3 p.m.-8 p.m.
