The 2023 Owari Nishibiwajima Festival will be limited to float procession only (no fireworks).

An Epic Parade of Five Floats with More Than 200 Years of History

A float festival held each year on the first Saturday and Sunday in June, to announce the coming of summer. Five floats with more than 200 years of history heroically parade down the Minoji highway between lines of street stalls, and there are also karakuri puppet dance shows.
