Yukuhashi Summer Festival (行橋夏祭り)

August 25th, 2010

The Yukuhashi Summer Festival was easily my favorite festival of the summer so far. The lantern float parade was energetic, the taiko drums were impressive, the food vendor cheap but delicious, and the fireworks were long lasting and creative. I had a great time despite the 34C+ heat. This is not an event to miss next year.

The daily photos to this site will be about this festival for the next 4 days.
