There were a lot of cosplayers, a few taiko groups, fighting demonstrations, and even a tea ceremony (though we missed that part). I only managed a few pictures mainly because my phone was giving me trouble but here they are: (at least i'm posting mine before Boo ^.^)
That's Boo with her friend that came along. I had two friends with me, but they left before the end of the festival. A girl Boo knew from school was in the Taiko group above and the dude with the black and red karate suit on was the head of the kempo group we watched. They told us he even fought Chuck Noris, but they didn't say whether he won or not.
The cosplayers on the outside were part of a local group while the ones parading down the middle were people who had been asked to join that were in the crowd.
Other than that not much has happened. School's ended for me and work is about the same. I've lost a few managers and gained some new ones. I've met a couple of the new workers and so far they are pretty good. They are really cracking down on us in box with the ID thing and R-rated movies, but i'm doing pretty good.
Now all i've got to do tonight is see a man about a suit in a suitcase.
Wish me luck!!
