On Saturday I went to the Powell Street Festival. This event is all about Japanese Canadian culture. My Karate Sensei was part of an Iaido demonstration which I unfortunately missed. There was a Kokoro dance performance in the afternoon which was quite interesting. I'd never seen this type of dance before, and I was impressed by the focus and strength of the performers. By an interesting coincidence this group practices at the same dance studio that I plan on checking out this week or the next.
In the evening I went to a dinner with a group of my sisters friends. For dessert we watched one of the Celebration of Light fireworks events.
