Japanese Powell Street Festival

A little late for this post, but finally uploaded some photos from the Japanese Powell Street Festival and sights around Canada Place in Vancouver on July 31, 2011. The Festival is held every year during the last weekend of July.

The Powell Street Festival is an annual celebration of Japanese Canadian arts, culture and heritage that features something for everyone: dance, music, film and video, visual arts, martial arts demos, amateur sumo tournament, craft vendors, traditional displays, and of course, tons of scrumptious Japanese food.

Our experience: This was our 2nd time (2nd year) attending this event. The weather was great; the parking was okay. We found parking a bit further, but still only a few blocks to walk. There were a lot of people lined up at the food stands. There's pretty good food. We had our lunch there and bought Yakisoba with the fried veggie patty (I forgot what that was called).
