Water Fight Festival and World Festa at Keyaki Hiroba | SAITAMA
August 10 @ 10:00 - August 12 @ 20:00
The 17th annual Saitama Shintoshin Keyaki Hiroba Water Fight Festival and World Festa will take place in August this year. In previous years it was held in July. The new dates are from August 10th to 12.
The grounds and food booths will be open from 10 am to 8 pm (5 pm on the 31st). The water fights will take place between 11 am and 1 pm and again between 2 pm and 4 pm. There is a kiddies pool for children under three years old.
The water fight festival is based on the Thai festival of Songkran, where throwing water is believed to encourage a good harvest and good health. There is no cover charge to participate in the water throwing festival. You can pay to try some cuisine from different parts of the world.
The event will go ahead in the case of light rain, but will be cancelled in the event of heavy rain or a typhoon.
