Showa O-bon Matsuri!
Showa O-bon Matsuri (8/24)
Come join our family-friendly celebration! Kids welcome!
O-bon is the annual Japanese summer custom of honoring the spirit of one’s ancestors. The O-bon customs are not somber, but done in a festive and celebratory mood. This will be a fun picnic-style event complete with traditional Japanese summer games and O-bon activities such as Bon Odori dancing.
Pack a picnic dinner, your beach chair or blanket, and enjoy Japanese traditions for Showa’s annual O-bon event! We will provide the kakigori (Japanese sno-cones), popcorn, water, and mugicha (Japanese barley tea). Also lots of fun Japanese ‘festival’ like games will be on-hand!
This event will be held outdoors, on our front lawn, weather permitting. Please do not post this on MeetUp. You can however invite a friend!
When: Thursday, August 24th from 5:15–7:15
Where: 420 Pond St, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130-3403
We hope to see you at the event!
