The Atsuta Festival is held on June 5 at the Atsuta Shrine.
This is the biggest festival of the 70 festivals held at the shrine, and one of the calendar's most auspicious events. In the shrine's main sanctuary, religious rites are performed by the high priests while, within the greater compound, portable shrines (mikoshi) are carried, a martial arts contest is conducted, and performances by street entertainers are held.
In the evening, vendors with paper lanterns on their wagons line the streets, and fireworks are set off in the sky. (*reference: Wiki)
