(SFC) The Tokyo Lantern by the Bay Festival was aglow this weekend with 30,000 water-borne candle lanterns floating in the waterway and featured the bid emblem in lights to promote the desire for the Games.

Odaiba Marine Park was the area where the event was held and is the proposed site for the triathlon and marathon swimming competitions in the bid plan to host the summer Olympics.

Tokyo is bidding against Istanbul and Madrid to host the summer Games and the final decision will be voted on September 7 in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
