The Teen Anime/Manga Festival on March 2 brought costumed teenagers, families and music lovers to the Prescott Valley Library to hear Japanese Taiko drumming, consider a taste of sushi, view anime/manga artwork, and watch cosplay.

"As far as we can ascertain, this is the first Anime/Manga Festival held in Northern Arizona, and we are pleased that as many as 200 teens participated," said Carol Sibray, Teen Library.

The event began with Eileen Morgan's Japanese Taiko drumming in the auditorium. The sound of the deep rhythmic cadence could be heard when approaching the library entrance. During the performance Morgan called up groups of children and adults to mimic her drum beats.

The free festival also included door prizes, green tea and sushi, an art contest, and a cosplay show (costume play as performance art).
