The annual kids parade, taiko and ballet performances, and festival dances highlighted the opening night of the Japanese Fall Festival. After that as the evening cooled down and dusk fell, hundreds of candles were lit for the beautiful candle light walks.
Come out to the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden for two more full day and evenings on Saturday and Sunday! See the full schedule of events here.
