Camellia Festival (part 1) ;

Last Friday, my husband's band group attended "Camellia Festival" held in next city.
There were some activities & events we could enjoy at the festival,  so I'd like to make this festival's post as 3 series.  Part 1 is mainly about performances.

*Pictures exhibited in front of the entrance of the room 
            where Camellia trees were displayed.*

*Some varieties of the Camellia tree*

*My husband's band group and some other performances*

*mochi (rice cake) throwing for closing time*

We had very strange weather day, rain at times and hail storms for some minutes 
but luckily the wind brought us back the sun.    

I'm linking this post for Thursday Favorite Things and Skywatch Friday.

  5. Hi Miyako san, what a fun festival! For a second, I thought camera festival, and then realized it was camellia. Haha.
    The camellia flowers are very beautiful! And how great you get to see all the performances under blue sky. The picture of mochi flying is fantastic! Glad rain and hail didn't stay long :-)
    I look forward to part 2 and part 3!

  15. The camellias are such beautiful colours!

  16. What a neat festival and I am glad your husband's band was part of it. That makes it even more exciting.

    The camellias are just lovely -- and the skies you show look wonderfully blue and warm ... but it sounds like you had a typical early spring day ... changeable weather is part of that season!

  18. Dear Miyako
    Camellias were my mother's favorite flower, so i always think of her when I see one. I'm happy that the weather cleared up for the festival!

  19. Beautiful Miyako
    I have always loved Camellias.
    They flower all over New Zealand from March starting with the Sasanquas, bringing colour to our cold winter days.

    Your husband's band looks like they had fun performing - their costumes look great - I love the hats!

    Only yesterday did I first hear about Mochi and I would like to try and make some - would you share your recipe?

    It's been nice to catch up with you again - I'm sorry it has been so long but I have been working full time.
