Daikin Festival

Daikin Festival 2015

The other major Japanese festival I attend every year is the Daikin festival, sponsored by Daikin Industries. Held every year on the Friday before memorial at the Decatur, Al fairgrounds, the festival is inspired by Obon festivals in Japan. Dancing, games, free food, and hot air balloon rides make it lots of fun!

This is the first time Maggie’s friend (the one in the middle) has ever worn a yukata. And Holly is wearing a happi coat from last year. Or maybe the year before?…

The balloons arrive at the beginning of the event. You know, for dramatic impact…

Kudos to this lady, who not only taught the dances all evening, but at 8 months pregnant too!
