BRIDGE USA SUMMER FEISTIVAL 2016

We're in the 21st year of having the biggest Japanese festival in the South Bay.
"The 21st annual Bridge USA Summer Festival"
At last years festival we had a turnout of over 15,000 people.
All the Japanese food stands drew a ton of people, who were more than willing to stand in line for all those tasty treats. At the main stage, there were so many performances which drew a ton of applause and really excited the crowds.

This years festival will be even more exciting. We will have a Samurai parade, where brave and fearsome men will dress in authentic Samurai armor.
We will also have a "Culture Street"
where you can experience an authentic tea ceremony , a flower arrangement , attend a calligraphy workshop and above all, witness the charm and beauty of traditional Japanese culture.

Please come and join us, and make sure to bring your friends and family!
