Mark your calendars for July 20 and 21, 4-10 pm on Saturday and 3-8 pm on Sunday.
Everything you loved in the first 87 Bon Odori festivals, from dancing to eating to looking at displays to watching martial arts and enjoying taiko will be back.
After you’ve marked your calendars for the event, mark them again for dance practice on July 8-11, July 15-16, 7:30-9 pm in the Seattle Buddhist Temple gym.
The days’ schedules will follow later.
