    I went to the festival today, Sat.7/22/13. Here are a few tips bc this was pretty challenging to shoot. At 4:00PM I shot with ISO 100. By 8:00PM I shot with ISO 1600. I tried to keep the shutter speed at 1/200 of a sec bc of the fast dance movements. If you have a flash I recommend bringing it. I brought a flash on a wireless tripod mount. Helped out a ton. Dancing doesn't start till 6:30 but festival starts at 3:00. Nothing to really shoot besides people and booths but you should go early to find good parking. Plan to stay still 8:00. There are some really fun moments in the second part of the dance festival.

    Well, now I don't know if I can make it or not. I have a sick grandson to watch while his parents are at work. I guess I'll Chang my RSVP and just show up if I can.

      I usually don't share these locations with meet up because 10 years ago there were only a handful...now everyone with a camera is there. But I still hold on to a few places I DON'T SHARE : )

    Members please click on the events scheduled on the calendar for more info. There were only 2 people that contacted me to about the West Covina Obon and I informed them that the rides that were supposed to come and get me...cancelled. The 2 people that called were told to stick around till 7pm for the night dancing. During the Bon Odori there are many things going on...but the maint thing is the gathering of prople dancing to give thanks. So have a look at the video I grabbed from you tube and have a look...thanks
