It was our local festival last weekend so Ebi-kun and I biked down to have a look around. The ONLY reason he wanted to go was to buy a toffee apple, he was gutted when there wasn't a toffee apple in sight! I don't know why they didn't have any, I am thinking it is the ridiculous cost of apples (make that all fruit and veg) this year!
He did have a go at 'scoop the goldfish with a paper spoon' game, he didn't catch one but they give everyone one anyway.
Poor Dave the goldfish died 2 days later, not surprising really.
We watched some taiko drumming, and a toddler gatecrashing the even which was quite amusing then when the sun started setting we headed to the park near the school because there is a much better view of the fireworks from there. I was under the impression that they would be over by 8pm but in fact they didn't start until 8pm! So, we sat in the park and Ebi-kun told me traditional Japanese stories, I was surprised how many he knew!
My husband got home and realised we weren't back, so he came and joined us at the park for the fireworks too, nice end to the evening!
