Crowds and rain

There wasn't much to the Takamatsu Sanuki Matsuri other than food booths, HUGE crowds and a little bit of entertainment.  It was held in two locations, by the harbour and in a park about a 20 minute walk away.  I think this was to try and spread the crowds out a bit.  The harbour area seemed to be the most crowded but I suppose this was due to the fireworks display that was scheduled for 8 pm.   Unfortunately someone forgot to reschedule the rainstorm that started just before 8pm. While I do enjoy a good fireworks show, standing in the rain (even with an umbrella) to watch is not what I would consider fun.   So, after a few minutes I headed back to my hotel.   I don't have any pictures from tonight because there really wasn't anything picture worthy.  I have hope that tomorrow the Tokushima Awa Odori is much more interesting.
