These different hapi coats represent the many visitors and supporters of the Orange County Buddhist Church obon. Members of other Buddhist temples and churches came to the OCBC obon to eat, drink, shop and dance. They showed pride for their respective churches by wearing different colored hapi coats. The wide variety of colors and styles shows how many different community supporters were present. And, there were a lot!

The 2007 OCBC Obon took place on Saturday, July 14 and Sunday, July 15 at the Orange County Buddhist Church, located at 909 S. Dale Avenue in Aneheim, California. To learn more about OCBC, please visit www.bca-ocbc.org
