Is Today the Last Tofu Festival Ever?

If the insider tip is true, you better hurry up as the Tofu Festival closes its doors at 6 p.m. today. According to our source the non-profit Little Tokyo Service Center, who operates the festival as a fundraiser, is not making enough money from the two-day event to make it worthwhile. Supposedly, other events will come in the future, but the 'fu is over with.

We sincerely hope this claim is false. If it is, how can we get one of the best food festivals in this city back?
