The Orange County Buddhist Church will observe Obon with services, Odori (dancing), and a bazaar-carnival at the annual Obon Festival during the weekend. In Japan, Obon evolved from the religious custom of honoring the deceased with memorial services. During this time, comparable holidays are observed throughout the Buddhist world. 

The traditional Obon dance which expresses joy for the teachings offered by the Buddha will be performed on Saturday and Sunday, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. with an intermission. The movements depict the livelihood of the villagers such as fishermen, coal miners, and farmers. Your participation with the other temple dancers is greatly appreciated.

The bazaar-carnival will be held from 2:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Saturday and from 2:00 to 8:30 p.m. on Sunday. This event will feature many games for the young and old. This year's raffle will offer many prizes, including the grand prize is $2000. The drawing will be held on Sunday at 8:30 pm. Winners need not be present to win. We will have handicrafts and farm fresh produce at bargain prices. Delicious Asian dishes such as beef and chicken teriyaki, sushi, udon (Japanese noodles), won ton, corn, teri burgers, oriental chicken salad, Okinawa Dango (donuts), Imagawa Yaki (Sweet bean dessert), oden, soft drinks, snow cones and other treats will be available.

The Hondo (sanctuary) will be open to any interested visitors and hosts from the Buddhist Education Center at the Orange County Buddhist Church will be available to answer any questions. Books on Buddhism will be sold at the entrance of the Hondo.

Games and Prizes for the children.
