River Do! Hiroshima River Festival
November 8, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 6:30 pmFree
Last year’s inaugural River Do! Hiroshima River Festival was a great success. The brainchild of Magic Island, people came from all over Japan to compete in SUP races and locals dropped by to cheer them, try out SUP and hang out by the river enjoying food, drinks and music.
The COVID-19 pandemic has made it impossible to hold the SUP tournament, but the spirit of River Do! is all about getting people to appreciate and use Hiroshima’s rivers – to bring them back to the center of culture where they once belonged. So, in this spirit, a slightly different, but still fun, River Do! Hiroshima River Festival will be held on November 8.
Come down to the River Do! Hiroshima River Festival on the grassy riverbank next to Chuo Park (or at least where it used to be) between 10am and around 6pm. Among the planned activities are river cruises, yoga workshops, the chance to try out SUP on individual and family-sized boards, river bicycling and riverside jogging. There will, of course, be food and drink stalls, including two local craft beer breweries as well as music and performances on the main stage.
GetHiroshima will take over the DJ booth from around 4pm and provide a sunset soundtrack 🎵🌆🎵
Should be fun!
As a kind of COVID-19 subsidy, ¥1000 tickets will be on sale which can be redeemed for ¥1300 of food and drinks and which can be used for some of the activities.
… more to be announced.
