Event: 48th Annual Higashi Honganji Buddhist Temple Obon Festival - This Weekend

We did a festival like this in Wahiawa, Oahu, Hawaii last year and had a great time. Taiko drums are infectious and really help to get your heart pumping!

Take Metro, if you can. It is only a small walk from Pershing Square or Civic Center Metro Red Line Stations and there is probably a Dash bus to take you right to the festival.
