Aki Matsuri (Fall Festival), San Francisco Japantown, Oct 4-5 2008
« on: September 08, 2008, 12:29:43 PM »

I just found about this on saturday, since I was up there with Ultramangaia and some other people. I'm willing to go to this since it will also have a cosplay contest and to celebrate the arrival of fall. Here are the dates:

October 4, 2008
11:00 am to 5:00 pm
October 5, 2008
11:00 am to 5:00 pm

The Japantown Merchants Association will present two full days of exciting events marking the arrival of Fall. Events include:

    * taiko drumming
    * traditional Japanese festival dancing
    * Hawaiian dancing
    * Bonsai display
    * soba noodle eating contest
    * anime movies & costume competition
    * children’s karaoke contest
    * kiku ningyo (chrysanthemum dolls)
    * food

 Japan Video is sponsoring the cosplay contest, so if you guys are going to participate on it, contact them directly. I hope to see you guys there.

Its just that the 38/38L is pretty crowded and in a Haruhi costume that might be weird.... Plus the homeless people as too many questions  :-\

Boy, it's been forever...

I'm not sure how my schedule will be at that point, but if all goes well I may come along. Highly doubt I'll be cosplaying, but... we'll see how things turn out.

I'll see if i can organize that, and i'll be there early. I know people from cosplay.com are going to that as well. It would be cool to have a meet up of sorts.

BTW, the trick to catch the 38 and get a seat in the process, get off at montgomery bart station and catch it from there. Since, it's just coming from the transbay terminal, it's usually empty and getting a seat before it gets hella crowded is nice. :3
