Everyone is invited to joyfully celebrate and remember the lives of family members, friends and temple members who have passed on.
“Please be sure to bring your family and friends, for this is an event for both young and old,” organizers said. “Once the dancing begins, please DO NOT HESITATE in joining us!”
For those who were not able to attend the dance practices, dance instructors will be positioned in the inner circle.
A limited number of mid-sized bentos — beef, chicken and vegetarian tofu (contains eggs) — will be sold. There will also be other food items available for purchase.
If you do not have a happi coat or yukata to wear for dancing, you can purchase and wear a BTSD Bon Odori T-shirt, which is dark blue (80% or 90% cotton), with a four-color print image on the back.
The deadline for pre-ordering bentos and T-shirts has passed.
