Hiki Children’s Festival | HIGASHI CHICHIBU
July 14 @ 09:00 - 15:30Free
Hiki is a district in Saitama that incorporates the rural towns of Hatoyama, Kawajima, Namegawa, Ogawa, Ranzan, Tokigawa and Yoshimi. The Hiki area started hosting a children’s festival that has grown in leaps and bounds since its inaugural celebration eight years ago. Each year it is held in a different location. This year the village of Higashi Chichibu has teamed up with the Hiki District to host the 2019 festival. Much later than usual too, I must add. Usually the festival is held in May, but this year it is on in July.
Date: Sunday July 14th
Location: Tsukikawa Mizube Park and Higashi Chichibu Village Community Center
The event is organised and run by the Junior Chamber International Hiki, with most of the towns in the Hiki district and surrounding areas helping or participating in the festival in some way.
There is always a great line up of events and experiences for children to enjoy. The festival is free to enter, but some of the activities may cost money. There are also stage events and performances a special guest star.
