75th Annual Obon

If you missed our virtual Obon Festival last year you can still view it on our Facebook Page or at

Our own Hoh Daiko drummers and Minyo dancers performed traditional Obon numbers and everyone is invited to join in from home via the internet.

We know that this is a very modified version of the Obon event that we are all used to, but we are doing our best to keep the tradition alive while protecting the health of our community members.
