More Excitement in “My Life”

This weekend was the local city festival, and we went to as much of it as we could.

There were amazing, intricate floats …

Drumming and bamboo flute playing…

Traditional dances and performances of various types, including absolutely gorgeous traditional costumes…

and multiple parades over a few days. Pictured here are some of the Bon dancers. Some of them actually carried candy in their sleeves, and in between dances would hand it out to children in the crowd.

Then, of course, there was my favorite part – festival food! These cones were stuffed with fabulous crepes, fruit, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce. Mmmm, crepes.

It seems that there are a lot of festivals this time of year, and what can I say? We’re trying to catch as many as we can before it’s too late. They make for some wonderful memories.
