Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute Family Carnival

This is one of my favorite South Bay carnivals and it always sneaks up on me!   Today and tomorrow the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute (JCI) is holding its annual Family Fun Carnival.

One of my Favorite South Bay events: the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute Family Fun Carnival

I enjoy this event for a variety of reasons:

  • They serve plenty of asian foods (inari, yakisoba, imagawayaki, spam musubi, lau lau, and shave ice!) and at reasonable prices
  • Live performances including taiko drums and martial arts (kendo for the win!)
  • Most importantly: its within walking distance of my house! :D  (I know the festival is happening when random people start parking on my street and walking towards the JCI.)

If you’re looking for a low key, family friendly, and affordable event for this sunny weekend, this one will satisfy nicely.
