Once called simply "Toyohashi Festival", this event changed names to the current title (ええじゃないか豊橋まつり Ee-Janaika Toyohashi Matsuri), which literally means something like "Isn't It Great? Toyohashi Festival". However, the term "Ee-Janaika" has a contextual meaning of "Festive Carnival-like Religious Celebration" in Japan. And that’s exactly what it is: throughout multiple venues around the city, the populace engages in dances both traditional and modern, with ceremonial garments that make for a great sight. Another event is the "Pareka", a term born out of mixing the words "parade" and "carnival". The So-Odori, when everybody starts to dance, is another high point of the event.
