The Nisei Week Grand Parade was held in Little Tokyo Sunday, August 14, 2016. The theme of this year’s Nisei Week Japanese Festival is ‘Celebrating our Culture and Community,’ and is an extension of the 76 years the festival has been in existence. This year the Disneyland Alumni Club helped celebrate the event marching with the Nisei Week Foundation Marching Band and Ondo Dancers, lead by our own Richard Ferrin and Ted Yamada. Michele Nagata choreographed the dancers to an original Disney theme. Marching board members included Mark Keiser, Mark Eades and Mark Hickson (A.K.A. Mark 1, 2 and 3).
Thanks to everyone for all their hard work. It was a fun time for all!
