Fireworks Festivals 2013

The summer is long, hot and usually pretty sticky. Beat (or at least embrace) the heat in the way that the locals have done for centuries.

By heading down to the beach, seafront or riverside after dark to enjoy a summer festival rounded off with stunning fireworks display. You get extra points if you don a yukata and geta sandals, but if shirts and flip flops are more your thing, just go and drink in the sights and the atmosphere.

From late July, right through to the end of August there are fireworks festivals on just about every weekend, and on some weeknights too. Here’s our wrap up of the displays and festivals that pack a bang around the region.

Please note that this is a post in progress. Please check back for additional events and links to more detailed info which we’ll add over the next few days.
