Another interesting event is held in June. A bright fest in the Shitennoji temple is as well followed with impressive folk music performances. Tourists visiting Osaka in July will have a chance to witness an amazing holiday named Tenjin Matsuri. In the daytime central streets of the city are filled with bright marches in which anybody can take part. In the evening people and the festival action relocate to the river bank to enjoy a boat parade.
The boats are painted in bright colors, decorated with paper garlands and traditional lanterns. Local people sailing the boats sing ethnic songs accompanied with bass drum. Each ethnic fest is a fusion of unique traditions and customs. Local people follow many beliefs, legends and symbolic traditions which they are eager to share with foreign guests. It should be noted that local folks are rather cordial and welcoming towards tourists interested in local culture and traditions.
