Owada Park fireworks with the windmill

Information for the SAITAMA CITY Owada Park Fireworks in 2024.

In summer 2024 there are three main firework displays in Saitama City, the capital of Saitama Prefecture. These ones in Owada park are the first of the three annually. They were also on last year, but they were not on between 2020 and 2022. This year there is one big change and a couple of other small changes too…

Owada Park Fireworks

These fireworks used to be on the same date every year, July 30th, regardless of what day of the week it was. The big change in 2024 is to the date – this year they will be on Sunday July 28th. Another change is that they don’t have a ‘back up date’. In previous years if there was rain on the 30th the fireworks were postponed until the following day. But they have said there will be no alternative date. If they don’t go ahead on the 28th, they won’t be on at all. If you want to watch from the (Owada Park) pool parking lot or the residential stadium Omiya, this year you need to purchase a ticket in advance. Tickets go on sale from 10 am tomorrow – July 2nd 2024.

The fireworks are launched around 7.30 pm. 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.
