Another year, another new venue for our Opening Party. Thanks much to long-time WMDF caterers Marusen for letting us use their restaurant as a venue (and for letting the celebrations spill over into the car park). Hakodate African All-Stars gave a thumping session, and found a new group of dancers in our staff and artists. Thanks to Hakodate City for their support and for the official presents for each group. Thanks also to our sponsors Apparel Fukushoku Kyoukai for their presents for the artists. Motomachi Park opens from August 5th. We can’t wait to meet more new worlds together.
