This event was advertised in a family summer mook (magazine) in 2017, linked below. The link is to an external site Amazon.co.jp, which insaitama.com is part of their affiliation programme. Any purchase you make through this link, the blog will make a very small percentage of the sale, which contributes to the costs of self hosting this website.
Water fight festival was first published on Saitama With Kids in 2017 and is updated annually.
Events by their very nature are tentative. Please do check with the official sources for any last minute changes due to weather or other mitigating factors.
