alabama_decatur_daikenWill you be passing by Decatur, Alabama, on May 24, 2013, Road Trips Foodies?

There’s a special event scheduled from 6:30 to 9 p.m. that day at the Morgan County Fairgrounds, 1021 Modaus Road Southwest (map).

The 20th annual Daikin Festival, hosted by Daikin America, celebrates its Japanese heritage with cultural displays, exhibits, music, food and participatory activities for all ages. The best part? It’s all free (even the food).

Festival goers are encouraged to wear happi coats and participate in the Japanese folk dances (happi coats are cloth jackets, or robes, usually containing an emblem, family crest, or logo on the back, and are worn on festive occasions).

Live music includes country, Cajun, rock & roll, and traditional Japanese music, and each year, Daikin employees offer entertainment while playing the Japanese Taiko Drums.

Along with traditional festival food such as hot dogs, hamburgers, popcorn, and soft drinks, festival goers are treated to Cajun jambalaya, barbecue sandwiches, and Japanese Yakisoba — a stir-fried mix of noodles, cabbage, carrots, and beef. All food and drinks are free of charge.

In addition to free parking around the fairgrounds, free round-trip shuttle service will be provided to the fairgrounds from Decatur Mall and from Austin High School.

Daikin America is a global supplier of PTFE Molding and Fine Powders and Dispersions.
