Despite a typhoon threatening this year’s Ohori Park Fireworks display, the show went on at Fukuoka Now’s annual Yukata Dance Party on Wed., Aug. 1. La Boheme Qualita Tenjin was a sea of color & movement, as 289 yukata and jinbei clad guests partied on two floors– enjoying drinks, summer festival foods, games, magic shows and more. Things got hot on the 7th floor, with beats provided by DJ J.P. GUNNz and Sam Troy who got the crowd pumping, as well as a special belly dance show by Jacqueline Tauil (Argentine) from Tiempo Iberoamericano. MC Nita awarded prizes to the crowd – tickets to Isla de Salsa to two lucky punters, and vouchers for dinner and lunch at La Boheme Qualita for the best dressed yukata male, female and couple! The well dressed crowd partied on until closing time, in what was an altogether hot summer’s night in Fukuoka!
The NEXT Fukuoka Now party will be on Tue., Sep. 18 at the gorgeous “Canoviano” venue. It’s the first ever Fukuoka Film Festival Party. More details here: http://fukuoka-now.com/film-party/
