The Monterey Obon festival is one of my favorite events all year. It is a beautiful celebration of your ancestors and loved ones who have passed on. The scenery is stunning, the food is delicious, and end of the evening Obon dance is beautiful. I went often as a small child with my sister and grandma. My favorite part was always the Ikebana and Bonsai displays.
If you are ever in Monterey in July it is a must visit event!
