Once a year in on the last Saturday of July the city of Kuwana holds the Suigou Fireworks Festival on the Ibi river. The fireworks festival occurs in Suigo town, Kuwana. Fireworks are launched from the island in the Ibi river and make full use of the width and length of the river. The festival started as a commemorative event for the completion of the Ise Ohashi bridge in 1934 (9th year of Showa) and was temporarily put on hold during the war afterward it was resumed and continues to this day. For one and a half hours, around 10,000 fireworks, such as Starmine and exhibition fireworks, light up the night sky of Kuwana like giant flowers blooming in the sky. This year's highlights are the Nishakudama, the largest fireworks in the Tokai region.
