Terminal Islanders gathered on June 12 at George Bellis Park in Buena Park for their first picnic since 2020.
Three hundred attended and enjoyed a day of good food, entertainment and games. Most importantly, they were able to share time together.
Families participated in a sack race and other competitions.
A tradition at the picnic is ondo dancing. Terminal Islanders also dance in other community groups’ summer festivals and Obon celebrations.
