Labor Day weekend

Sumo is a Japanese kind of wrestling and Japan’s national sport. It originated in ancient times as religious performances to the Shinto gods. Nowadays, many ancient rituals are still followed.

The basic rules of sumo are simple: the wrestler who either first touches the floor with something other than his sole or leaves the ring before his opponent, loses.

We are pleased to welcome back "Kamikiiwa," "Koryu," and "Sunahama" for some super-sized fun at our festival. All three wrestlers are former professional sumo who now reside in Hawaii.

If anyone is in the vicinity of St. Louis with some free time and is interested in sumo...

Looks fantastic. These days I get a lot of information on events in the USA but all about Tea. This makes a nice change of pace. I do indeed second the invitation.
