This festival features a magnificent parade dating from ancient times.
With over 200 people dressed in traditional costume, the Ryukyu Kingdom Parade departs from the Seidanmae at Shurijo Castle.
As the parade proceeds, a number of small groups join in here and there, resulting in up to 3,000 participants. Ryutan (an artificial lake), located in front of Shurijo Castle, will be the scene of a brilliant fireworks display in the evening.
