The Nisei Week Festival closes each year with live entertainment and ondo dancing in the streets of Little Tokyo. The community at large are invited to participate. Many organizations and groups join in together dressed in festive attire. The Japanese American National Museum organizes a group of volunteers and staff each year to participate, with many wearing JANM purple happi coats.
