Celebrating a Japanese Festival in Westport

WestportNow.com Image
Despite today’s searing heat, the Japan Society of Fairfield County held its annual Obon Festival on Westport’s Jesup Green featuring Bon Odori, or Bon dance which guests performed in a circle. The event is derived from a traditional Buddhist belief that deceased family members return for a visit once a year in the summer. The festival welcomes the spirits back.
