Shonan Hiratsuka Tanabata Matsuri Festival 湘南ひらつか七夕まつり


Held for four days from the first Thursday of July, this is one of the largest Tanabata Festivals in the Kanto region. Usually called the Star Festival, about 3,000 colorful streamers hang all around the city center in the shopping district. There is also a parade and nighttime illumination of the streamers. Until 2008, the festival used to be held on and around July 7, but now depending on the year, July 7 might not fall within the festival period.
