Fun Times at the Tofu Festival

On Sunday, I was able to make it to the second day of the annual Tofu Festival in Little Tokyo. My favorite part of festivals is the food and the artisans. In addition to great tofu foods, I was able to get some lovely items at the booths including some jewelry, a hand-made shirt from India, and a black ukulele with gold colored turtles (I'm a sucker for ukuleles). The above is a video I was able to take of some great musicians playing traditional music.

Other great annual activities at the Tofu Fest included a WiFi Scavenger Hunt presented by Little Tokyo Unplugged, a performance stage (I saw a great martial arts display), information booths (I had a tongue analysis at a medicine booth), and there was even the "It's Hip to Be Square" Tofu with sunglasses roaming around for a picture opportunity. I felt bad for the person in the suit though...Sunday was a scorcher (all the more reason to have your fill of flavored shaved ice, barley tea, and boba drinks). Despite the heat, it was well-worth the venture out for fun times at this annual festival in Little Tokyo!
