Makubetsu Summer Festa (Makubetsu Natsu Festa)
Let’s enjoy Hokkaido’s short summer with local people. A fireworks display of 3000 fireworks is held at night.
The festival is a locally-based festival, and is held in the mid-summer. There are performances by the local junior high school brass band and drum performances by local citizens. At the festival site, food stalls sell beer, hot dogs and yakitori (grilled chicken) and there are also events including a lottery with great prizes.A fireworks display is held at the end of the festival, and 3,000 individual fireworks are fired into the summer night with music in the background. It is a very exciting experience for visitors.
