This event has now been combined with Nagara River Chunichi Fireworks Festival to become Gifu Nagara River Fireworks Festival.
The second of the Summer fireworks events on the Nagara river, this event used to take place on the first Saturday of every August. Both events were competitive displays with pyrotechnicians traveling from far and wide to show off their best designs with Mount Kinka in the background. The best seats were on the Nagara riverbank between Nagara-bridge and Kinka-bridge. There were displays and stalls throughout the day. You could catch a bus from JR of Meitetsu Gifu Station to Nagara-bashi or Ukai-ya.Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
