Everyone Had Great Fun and a Fantastic Weekend at ACE Cosplay
The Art Cosplay Expo in association with the Temecula Sister Cities Association presented a two day event celebrating Japanese traditional and pop-culture last weekend. The Old Town Temecula Civic Center and Town Square Park were swamped with colorful characters celebrating Cos-Play.
Temecula City Council Member Maryann Edwards stated “We are pleased that the Temecula Sister City Association and ACE have partnered to bring an exciting event for our youth and the young at heart that will help promote cultural and artistic exchanges in Temecula”.
The festival also had a Traditional Japanese Obon Ceremony in remembrance of the victims of 9/11 on Friday. A performance from a local Southern California Taiko drum group had the audience up and ready for the rest of the day’s festivities.
Mark this event on your calendar for next year if you missed it. It’s a lot of fun.
