Tanabata, Tanabata (#9)

Maiya and I walked from her preschool over to the 2nd Tanabata Festival back in August 2010, part of the Nisei Week Festivities.  My sister Gayle drove out to Little Tokyo from the Valley on a Friday evening.  Afterwards, we went to dinner at Suehiro's.

If you haven't seen the Tanabata Festival, I recommend you go next year.  It's a pretty cool sight to see.  It's also neat how different community groups make their own, and each is very different and unique.  This year some really big ones came from Japan.

Oh, wait!  I just realized I never posted last year's Tanabata photos in 2009, so with this blog, you get 2 for the low, low, price of 1.
