The Tacoma Buddhist Temple held its annual Bon Odori festival last Saturday, drawing hundreds of community members to enjoy a traditional Nikkei summer activity. According to the temple representative, the event was successful and sold out all the food items for the first time ever.

The local Bon Odori events in the Puget Sound area will conclude after the Olympia Bon Odori on Aug. 13. The Portland Bon Odori at Oregon Buddhist Temple will be held this weekend. More information can be found on the calendar page.
