Kakuda Tanabata ’09

This weekend I was busy going to lots of summer festivals. One of the was the Kakuda Tanabata festival on Friday, which is conveniently located close to my house. They had all of the tanabata decorations hung up all over one of the main streets.

There was lots of food stands, and lots of bands playing all day long. They were all local bands (I’m surprised how many punk bands there are in Kakuda). At night they had the rocket lit up, so you could see it anywhere in town.

Also there were fireworks as well, to cap off the whole event.

  1. It’s a cool rocket!
    The closest that I’ve ever lived to a rocket was when I lived in Florida…about three hours from NASA.
