MV Obon fest is the best. Better than San Francisco, San Jose, or anywhere else. I love it! In fact, I wish they had a spring festival as well. So wonderful!

I have attended this festival for many years as I moved from S.F. in 1952. I was used to the asian culture and the whole family spirit of this event. Try to attend and have a wonderful joyous time.
