Obon season is on. It's the celebration for us to remember those who aren't with us anymore. These photos are from the Venice obon. It's a smaller local event, and I'm glad to have stepped into the Venice Buddhist Temple to see it all. West LA does this too, and it went from being decent / small, to in my opinion at least from the last time I saw it, a raging and great event. The bad thing is that Comicon is on the same days, which is next week and I feel like I miss the event every year.
They even have a book sale, games, and other fun things like a bake sale! In WLA, they even allow outside vendors to have a booth.
Had to have it. Shave Ice, the magic coolant on a hot day.
