The Hamamatsu Matsuri has two distinct parts. The first, is a procession of floats that resemble small temples, each carrying musicians. The processions happen in the early evening from 6:30pm on each of the 3 days of the festival. The second part of the festival is a huge kite flying festival with each neighbourhood competing with their own giant kite. The kite flying part of the festival happens from 10am on May 3rd.

These activities take place at two different venues. The procession happens right next to Hamamatsu Station while the kite flying takes place at a park in Nakatajima near the sea. Shuttle buses will operate between the two venues. A one-way trip is 260yen for adults and 130yen for kids.
