Owada Park fireworks with the windmill

Information for the Owada Park Fireworks in 2023.

In summer 2023 there will be at least three different firework displays in Saitama City. These ones in Owada park have not been on since before the pandemic began.

Owada Park Fireworks

These fireworks are held on the same date every year, July 30th, regardless of what day of the week it is. If there is very bad weather on the 30th they are postponed until the following day; July 31st. The fireworks are launched around 7.30 pm, but people arrive early to secure a good viewing location.  They haven’t specified the number yet for 2023, but usually they launch about 5,000 fireworks. Displays include starmines and rapid succession type fireworks.

Owada Park is located right next to Omiya Second Park. As you can see from the featured photo at the top of the post, there is a windmill in view. That windmill is in Miharashi Park so the photo was probably taken from Shimin no Mori. The photo is public domain for promotional use, from Saitama City.

Editor’s note: this event post was temporarily removed from the website during the pandemic. Initially when they were a featured event on In Saitama back circa 2014 / 2015, they were run by NTT. But in recent years, they seem to be managed by Saitama City.
