Here's the video of the fireworks on the first day (October 19, 2019) of the 42nd Urasoe Tedako Festival, live-streamed on our Facebook Page.

You will need to skip to about 20:40 in the video to catch the show.

Today's event, October 20, has been cancelled due to inclement weather.

Awaiting whether there will still be a firework display at 2045 or not as the weather that canceled the main festival events has drastically changed.
