|we'll be back to try Uncle Sum
Camp Zama was open base that day for the festival. There were a lot of food booths! There were also some exhibitions and cultural performances in the afternoon and a series of Bon dances (Bon Odori) in the evening. And of course fireworks to cap off the whole thing.

Here's a partial video of the fireworks. Spot the hearts and smileys! :)
