PHOTOBLOG: Ogaki Festival May 2013

This weekend was a pretty large festival in the town of Ogaki (Gifu Prefecture). Saturday’s events were cancelled due to heavy rains, but Sunday turned out warm & sunny. During the day, plenty of food stalls were available to feast from, as well as small kids games & what looked like a haunted house. The real festivities began later with large lantern-lit festival floats being pulled down the streets. The real treat were the performances that started as the sun went down:
