Overview
More
This summer festival was launched in 1972 by the residents of Kurume. On the eve of the festival, a hula dance and other stage events are held starting at dusk at the Kurume Higashimachi Park, with a proclamation announcing the start of the festival taking place at night, as well as a raffle. For the second day, the festival takes flight, and Meiji-dori becomes a pedestrian paradise called the "Power Street," with carnival events and taiko drum performances exciting the crowd. In the evening, there is a group so-odori dance of 10,000 people. The festival for that day concludes with a grand finale of ladder-top stunts, and the finishing climax is the "water illumination." Jets of mist are illuminated with light and enhance the Chikugo River. The final day features a large fireworks show over the Chikugo River.
