Jackson Park, Mountain View

Japanese, Portuguese, Spanish and Mexican immigrants have all brought colorful flourishes of their respective cultures to the neighborhood. Japanese-Americans hold the annual Obon festival to honor the memory of their ancestors at the nearby Buddhist Temple on Stierlin Road. Across the street from the temple is the Portuguese Hall, and six weeks after Easter the Portuguese Holy Ghost Parade celebrates spring with the ringing of marching-band brass.
