The JACCC Plaza had a festival area setup over the weekend. Demonstrations over taiko and sumo took place on stage.UCLA's Kyodo Taiko rallied the crowd with it's mastery and showmanship over its superb playing of taiko drums. Near the MOCA, on another stage, in front of the beautiful and colorful Tanabata Festival paper lanterns, was another stage that featured musical acts and a cosplay contest over the first days of the festival. This stage was surrounded by Japanese food booths to get the real taste of a Little Tokyo festival.
Activities continue into this weekend. Check back here at TTDILA or the official web-site for more events going on.
