This fireworks show is held every year on the banks of the Chikuma River, which winds through the city center. During the event, which coincides with the O-bon holiday, approx. 3000 fireworks are launched from a section of the river close to the Iiyama's Chuobashi Bridge. The same day, the town's traditional Buddhist altar makers hold a memorial Mass and lanterns are floated down the river. It's hard to say which is more spectacular - the night sky lit up with color, or the soft lights bobbing in the dark river. Viewing chairs are available for a fee.
