Pacific Beach Hotel’s Natsu Matsuri

Pacific Beach Hotel held its last Natsu Matsuri or summer festival this past weekend. The event — which began in late July and took place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday through August — featured traditional Japanese festival food, games and a bon dance. On Sunday, Hawaii Matsuri Taiko performed traditional taiko pieces and provided drum beats for the bon dance.
