Festival lantern as a cover photo for the Hanno Summer Festival event post

Hanno City have confirmed the summer festival will be on in 2023. However, apart from the date, they have yet to provision any further details. The Hanno City website just gives the dates and times and says to check the Hanno Tourism website for further details. However, as of July 5th 2023, they have yet to add any information. So unfortunately this post is short on detail and is more of an ‘fyi’ that the festival is on in 2023.

Hanno Summer Festival

What we do know is that the festival is scheduled for Saturday July 15th and Sunday July 16th. In addition, the official Hanno city website states that the festival will be on from 9 am to 9 pm on the Saturday and from 1 pm to about 8 pm on the Sunday. Generally, several festival floats participate in the festival. There are usually festival stalls too.

The featured photo at the top of the post is not from this festival. It is just a photo of a lantern I had in my personal photo stock! I used it because the festival flyer for Hanno Summer Festival is not yet available.
