Today's textile design is "Smily Goldfish"
One fond memory of a festival during my childhood days.
Crowds of people
at the spot lined with stalls
along the travel path of the Mikoshi.
There were so many exciting things;
Performances, ring toss, "Smart Ball" (pin ball),
Goldfish scooping, tortoiseshell candy, candy figures
Okonomiyaki, and the like.
I do poorly at Goldfish scooping,
and I have no memories of ever being able to scoop any up,
but it was a definite must-have at any festival.
