The highlight of the longer running Ueno Summer Festival (mid-July to mid-August). The parade starts at 5:30pm with over 30 groups performing along Ueno Chuo Dori. There will also be food and drink stalls in the park and performances on the open-air stage located at the bottom of the park below Shinobazu Pond. Other events during the month-long festival include a flea market and a paper lantern floating event.
