No fireworks, huh

Second half of Bon Odori in Stockton is what they call “Bazaar”:

The second part of the Obon observance is the cultural festival to be held from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on July 28 and 29. It will feature performances throughout the day by community groups, including drumming by Stockton Bukkyo Taiko as well as dance and martial arts demonstrations. This takes place in the Social Hall along with a variety of Japanese crafts, displays and food.

Located in People’s Republic of California, fireworks are prohibited (on the grounds of greater public good, naturally — it’s a fire hazard). The government prohibits them at The 4th as well, but faces massive civil disobedience at that date.
