The Morikami will celebrate the 35th annual Bon Festival in one enlivening evening! This uplifting festival is inspired by Obon, Japanâ€™s traditional three-day holiday honoring ancestors and thanking them for the quality of life enjoyed by the living. The evening features taiko drum performances, traditional Japanese folk dancing and a street fair with games and vendor booths. Guests are invited to purchase hand-crafted lanterns to write a special message to passed loved ones. The highlight of the evening will begin at sunset when Morikami Pond, surrounded by the beautiful Roji-en garden, will be transformed into a tranquil sea of lighted lanterns that, in accordance with Japanese custom, guide the departure of ancestorsâ€™ souls who have come for a brief visit among the living. A special fireworks display will cap the enchanting evening. Â Bon Festival 2012 is a rain or shine event. Tickets are non-refundable.
