Entering the festival

As we climbed the stairs to the second floor a light rain started, so when we reached the festival people had their umbrellas open. There was no entrance fee, the normal thing at festivals, and we just walked in and started looking around. The first thing we noticed was that some kind of a performance going on under the tent at the right. It was a group of kids dancing to a recording. Many of the pop stars are members of groups that sing and dance as a unit. These kids were probably copying one of the pop groups, probably the ones who recorded the song. When I was in Sendai, in the downtown area there was a building with an inset entrance and shiny, reflective walls. Whenever I went by, there was almost always a group of kids using the large mirror-like walls to synchronize their moves.
