Sunday at the Cherry Blossom Festival

This afternoon, on my way to the gym, I passed through Japantown & happened to catch the tail end of the Cherry Blossom Festival parade.

Teams of mikoshi carriers crossed Fillmore Street...

...including those wild guys in their loin cloths.

I've never seen the Cherry Blossom Festival so crowded.

Traditional exhibits like bonsai trees are still to be found...

...but the biggest draw seemed to be the anime cosplay talent show on the main stage.

I saw people in costume... every direction I looked.
