Mililani Hongwanji Obon Dance/Craft Fair

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that I've never been to a bon dance in my life (unless you count the one time I happened to be at the Okinawan Festival when the dance started.) And, of all things, it's taking a craft fair to get me there . . .

For the last 2 years, I've been doing the Made in Hawaii Festival at the Blaisdell, but this year I decided to do something different. I had always seen the Mililani Obon/Craft fair on the calendar, but because it's always on the same weekend as Made in Hawaii, I never had a chance to attend.

The event will be held on August 17 & 18, Friday & Saturday, starting at 6:30 pm. The lantern parade and the opening ceremony will be at 7:15 Friday, with the dance itself running from 7:30-11:00. On Saturday, there will be a taiko performance 7:00-7:30, followed by the dance. The craft fair will be indoors, so if you're in the area, please stop by!
