Held on the 2nd and 3rd of May every year the Ome Grand Festival (“Ome Taisai”) is—as its name suggests—Ome city’s biggest annual festival. The festival started out as a sort of copy of the Kanda and Sanno Festivals in the center of the capital but subsequently grew to be something very unique to Ome City. The 12 floats from each district of the city parade around on 2 May before gathering together on the 3rd to form a procession down the main road (which is lined with 300 stalls that extend for almost 2 kilometers).
