Itami Fireworks Festival is held on the 3rd Saturday in August every year. (If there is a storm on that day, the event will be put off to the next day. If the next day is also a stormy day, the event will be cancelled.) At the opening ceremony (lighting ceremony), the fire will go across the bridge along with the blasting fuse and reach the place where the fireworks will be let off. In the grand finale, there are wonderful wide mines which expel stars, shell-shaped wave fireworks, and the fireworks which will be shoot off continuously in several places simultaneously. The sparkling waves of the fireworks are blazing with colors. As a custom in Itami, the famous fireworks which "bloom together like the gold weeping willows" will round off the summer in Kansai area.
