The 2002 Cherry Blossom Festival's Anime Costume Parade and contest was held on Sunday, April 21, 2002. Over 110 participants from all over the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond dressed in costumes ranging from such anime series as Sailor Moon to Princess Mononoke as well as some video games such as Zelda and Final Fantasy. The first prize of a Plush Totoro went to Bay Area resident Kiyoshi Okuma for his Link costume from Zelda. The three second place winners were Kimberly Gruenke (Zelda from Zelda), Yilan Chan (Lulu from Final Fantasy X) and Amber Duncan (Sailor Tin Nyanko from Sailor Stars). The five third place winners were Justin Kudo (Auron from Final Fantasy X), Ingrid Sinchez (Cherry from Saber Marionette J), Diana Lebeda (Misha from Pitaten), Lydia White (Sailor Galaxia from Sailor Stars) and Chris Tang (Wizard from Angelic Layer). All of the entrants participated in the Cherry Blossom Festival's Grand Parade, which started at San Francisco's City Hall and ended at Japan Town. Prizes were distributed to the winners and participants at an awards ceremony at the Peace Plaza following the parade.
