Nisei Week 2019: Awa Odori Dancers

Submitted by: Japanese American National Museum (Los Angeles, California, USA)  

The largest aspect of the annual Nisei Week Festival in Los Angeles is the grand parade down the streets of Little Tokyo with traditional Japanese dancing, floats, marching bands, celebrities, and various community groups. The Japanese American National Museum always participates, with volunteer photographers documenting its participation. They also take photos of other parade entries like this one of awa odori dancers at the 2019 Nisei Week Parade.
