Feeling Festive

Festivals are SO much fun, and there are all kinds of festivals for whatever makes you happy! There are music festivals, art festivals, Cinco de Mayo festivals, film festivals, Mardi Gras...I could go on but then I'll start sounding like Forrest Gump's friend Bubba. 

I LOVE festivals, and two weeks ago some friends and I got to check out the Northern California Cherry Blossom Festival in San Francisco.

This is an annual festival and is held to showcase Japanese culture and diversity. After a lunch of the best ramen (seriously, I still have dreams about the stuff), we walked the half mile or so to the festival, sat for a bit and watched part of the beauty pageant.

We also got to check out all of the goodies the rows of table tents had for sale, and they had EVERYTHING! They had jewelry, art, clothing, home decorations and keychains. My favorite table was one set up for everyone to learn more about and pet Shiba Inu's, a super sweet and cute Japanese dog breed. 

People had the cutest pets there as well.

We also got to take some photos in those cute Japanese photo booths, where you can decorate them after.

If you ever have the opportunity to be in Northern California during the Cherry Blossom Festival, check it out!
