Palo Alto Buddhist temple to host Obon Festival

Original post made on Aug 1, 2013

Eimi Okano and Jeanette Arakawa and hundreds of other volunteers are busily working at the Palo Alto Buddhist Temple on Louis Road, putting together the final touches on food and decorations. Yesterday, the focus was on udon and soba noodles. Soon, they will be preparing their specialty: teriyaki chicken.

The Buddhist Temple is near Oregon Expressway on Louis Rd. It's around the corner from Ohlone Elementary.

If you're looking to boost your child's self-esteem, it's not too difficult to win a goldfish at the ping-pong in cup game booth.

We checked out this festival tonight. It was fun and cute. Nice bonzai trees which I always love to see. Quaint booths with games. Trinkets and things to buy at low prices. It was a fun stroll and there is quite a bit of food too. Also a live band was playing some Credence Clearwater Revival when we got there - but not sure how that relates to Buddhism, but it was fun. I recommend it for your karma! ;-)
