Scenes from a Matsuri:
The Hiratsuka Tanabata Festival

On Monday, we went to Hiratsuka City for one of the largest Tanabata festivals. The highlight of this four-day festival are the beautiful decorations, (many that light up with moving parts or sounds,) the dozens of groups of dancers that parade the streets and of course-the matsuri tents with carnie food!!!
