On Friday, Up With KREM invited some groups to talk about the festivities and to perform ahead of their main performances this weekend.
Some of Spokane’s Japanese dancers showed off their Japanese Samba. The group also does Japanese Folk and Festival Dancing as well. They will be out at Heritage Day and are encouraging visitors to join them in dancing!
Vocalist and rapper Anthony Shirahama aka Buddha Northwest was joined by Jermaine K. to talk about what it means to be a part of Heritage Days. Shirahama is a descendant of one of the Japanese American families who arrived in Spokane over 100 years ago and owned a business at Trent Alley.
He wrote a special song for the unveiling of the Historic Markers of Spokane's Chinatown & Trent Alley.
