The 28th Bon-Odori Festival was occurring in uptown, today. So, we decided to join our Asian counterparts and share in the Japanese festivities. There were different martial arts performances and a tea ceremony. Traditional dancing and drumming also took place on and around the center stage. Katy was especially entranced by the dancing and drumming. We took part in the origami station and made a pink (of course!) crane. Of course, no cultural event would be complete without food so Ted and I just had to have a bento box for lunch ;-P. 

So much fun and who knew there were so many Asians living in Charlotte?!?!
