Chiba Flower Festival

Flower Festival
Spring has sprung and in here, Chiba, the Flower Festival was held to celebrate it.


Flower Festival
I was having a sanpo (walk) around my neighborhood when I found out about this festival. The festival was held in Chiba Chuo Koen, a small park near Parco.

Flower Festival 2
As the name implied, you could expect that there were flower related stalls in here.

Flower Festival 3
You could learn about gardening stuff in here.

Chihana-Chan
Chihana-chan is the cute mascot of Chiba City. Chiba City's goal is to create a community filled with flowers. She was designed as a fairy of the city flower, the Oga Lotus.

Stage
There was also a stage in here where volunteers could sing a couple of songs. I have little knowledge about Japanese songs so I had no idea what song the woman sang. But it was quite good.

Flower Festival 4
Here people could sit and enjoyed the song.

Watching
There were some moments of silent while listening to the songs.

Stage
After a few songs, it was time for this lovely lady to sing.

Listening
Some people started to look at the stage as if there was something very interesting on the stage.

The lovely lady started to sing.

Cheering
Suddenly the moment of silent was gone, the audiences started cheering, and the park became livelier. ^^

Thinking
It was a relatively small festival with stage and few stalls, but what's interesting was that they put lots of art made by flowers from the station to the park. It was around 10 minutes from the station to the park so you could imagine how many of this things were there.

Welcome Anthony. Glad you like the photos. The thing that always impressed me is how much effort the Japanese people put into making these. Amazing.
