Annual Japanese festival in Phoenix goes online

Right after growing in acceptance for many years, Arizona Matsuri, a pageant celebrating Japanese culture and art, hosted its greatest party still at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix past calendar year.

Tens of 1000’s of attendees queued in hour-long strains for foods these types of as takoyaki (fried batter octopus balls) and ramen, watched taiko drumming performances and marveled at “the Candyman” Shinobu Ichiyanagi crafting candy sculptures.

These a big-scale party just cannot transpire this 12 months due to the coronavirus pandemic. So the matsuri, which interprets to “festival,” will soldier on this 12 months as a virtual event on Fb for the initial time.
