Dozens of participants - some in traditional garb - take part in the Mi Kokoro dance at the 80th annual summer festival of Bon Odori Sunday, July 22, 2012, at the Seattle Buddhist Temple in Seattle, Wash. Also known as Obon, the festival is an official Seafair event intended to honor ancestors who have passed on and to remember and appreciate all they have done. Many festival goers dress in Japanese kimono or yukata. The event also features Japanese food booths and refreshment, taiko and martial arts performances, and craft exhibits and demonstrations.
