I went the Obon Festival with Grandma, Grandpa, Uncle, and Auntie. 

I got to dance with Miss Lisa. She showed me how. You just watch the people in front on you, and you follow them.

I didn’t have video of it this year. Here’s what it looks like, but I’m not in this video:

I love that I get to go to this festival with my family. This is the second time, and I want to go again next year!

For Student Blogging Challenge #2, I’m going to tell about the festivals in our area. I know of one of them and my friend, Serena, will help write the other two because she has been to them.

(I think) Red Baron & me 

1. Japanese Matsuri Festival 
We got to see the drums, and there was lots of food. People were dressed up in anime costumes or traditional Japanese clothes.

2. Lost Dutchman Rodeo Days
There are so many people, and horses. There is bronc riding and barrel racing. The food is amazing, and the music is great!

3. Renaissance Festival

The Renaissance Festival shows you what it was like to live in Medieval  times. There are people dressed in costumes and interacting with you. There are people running around interacting with you like you are one of them. They have giant turkey legs too!

If you were visiting us, which festival sounds the most interesting to you?

Miss Lisa & me at Obon Festival

When I was asked where I want to visit and I could pick anywhere in the world, I picked Japan.

I want to visit Japan to learn how to sing and dance like Miss Lisa. She’s really good at it, and it’s because she moved to Japan to learn how.

Do you want to visit Japan?

I want to visit Japan (mp3)

I had this in another post, but want to show you what I mean. See if you can find us on stage.

Hi, I went to Obon. I liked the dance. I liked to be on the stage. It was cool. Miss Lisa put me on the stage because it was her turn to sing. Miss Lisa taught me the dances. She told me to watch the other people. 

Thank you, Miss Lisa for teaching me Odori dancing. I had the best time!

Your friend,
