Ochiai Peace Festival 落合ピースフェスタ

On Sunday 26th August I had a stall at a local festival in my neighborhood, the Ochiai Peace Festa. I met some nice families and talked to them about Music Together. The festival turned out to be similar to the program in many ways. There were lots of live music performances, there was dancing and waving scarves, with some really unusual instruments from around the world. There were many other stalls there selling handmade goods, even an old man who makes Kalimbas. They were great. I shall definitely buy one for my centre. Other events included a yukata fashion show, outdoor yoga class, and fabric dying workshops. A fun day, but very very hot!

Not sure what was more suprising, the man in the leotard or the didgeridoo?
