East Meets West at Matsuri of Arizona 2010

Feb 27, 2010

Matsuri of Arizona FlyerKonichiwa! If you are looking for something fun to do this weekend, you might want to check out the 26th annual Matsuri of Arizona in downtown Phoenix. This festival of Japanese culture runs from 10:30am to 5:00pm on February 27th and 28th, 2010. It's a lot of fun for the whole family and the best part is that admission is free!

Both days feature a full schedule of events including exhibitions, live music and dance performances, and more! There are plenty of food booths to satisfy your appetite and of course, it's also a great place to see lots of interesting people. You can get more information about the event at: http://www.azmatsuri.org.

Here are some photos I took at Matsuri of Arizona on Saturday:

Just too many things to do this weekend. Saturday I took in the Doggie Beach Party and today went on the Brentwood Historic District Tour. Why do all the good things have to happen at the same time? Glad to see your photos so I could get an idea of what I missed. Maybe next year!
