The 15th annual Kumagaya Waku Waku Railway Festa will be held on Saturday May 18th 2019 from 10 am to 3 pm.
This is a great event for little kids and train lovers and just a great day out for all. They will have a mini SL for the kids as well as live performances, mascots visiting and the opportunity to dress up in railway master and driver clothes. There are live performances and festival stalls with food, goods and activities. Several mascots will be available for meet and greet and photos. And the first 3000 visitors through the door will receive a commemorative present.
They have other events lined up specifically for children and some for adults. There is no information about the adult only events on the official website yet (linked below), but they usually have an event where you can operate a train.
