FAIR Takata, August 17, 2013!Posted: August 27, 2013
Saturday, August 17th saw a beautifully sunny day which was ideal for our water based games. All our fantastic volunteers showed up and prep for all of the games were finished ahead of the event. We were so lucky to have volunteers from all over Japan, including Tokyo, Tochigi, Aomori, Iwate, Miyagi, and Akita. Everyone absolutely kicked butt at manning the various booths, giving smiles and happy memories to everyone who came.
Guy Totaro from Niko Niko Taishi put the biggest smiles on everyone’s faces with magic, balloon animals and comedy. We also had stellar performances from both Russell Kabir and Autumn River Willow, gaining a new group of diehard fans that will look forward to all their performances in the future. Also a huge shout out to IsraAID for making the trip to Rikuzentakata. We are so grateful for their support!
The goal of FAIR Takata was for people to get together and enjoy themselves, and we whole-heartedly think this goal was accomplished. We know that people will be talking about Pitch Burst and face painting for many years to come.
A HUGE thank you to the volunteers, donors, friends and family that supported us this past year while we were preparing for this event. We really, truly couldn’t have done it without you.
