It was the 42nd Izumisano Obon Festival. This year was the second attempt to try and break the Guinness Book of World Record for the most Bon Odori dancers. This year about 2,400 people participated including eighteen ica Japanese language students from nine different countries. As festival goers packed stalls selling goods, dancers dressed in yukata danced to the traditional folk song of Izumisano, Sano Kudoki.
