The Obon Festival is an annual festival. The San Jose Buddhist Church is in need of help to staff any number of booths and activities; food booths, game booths, food preparation areas. The event is fun and family friendly. We REALLY need help during the week leading up to Obon weekend. We are building booths (Construction shifts) starting from July 8 - no experience is necessary! The booths are made from lengths of pipes and joints - anyone can help.While rooted in Japanese Buddhism, the event is seriously multi-cultural. The centerpiece is the Japanese folk dancing on Saturday and Sunday, July 14 and 15, 2018.
