Hansen Festival open to entire community

Date Posted: 2010-07-15

Marine Corps Community Service gets into the festival business this weekend with the Hansen Festival, a free festival with something for everyone.

The northern Marine Corps Base is pulling out all the stops on the Hansen Parade Deck, offering plenty of fun and entertainment for individuals of all ages. Saturday’s festival fun runs 3~10 p.m., while Sunday’s action starts at 1 p.m. and runs until 10 p.m. Admission is free to everyone across Okinawa, with one exception; no pets are allowed.

The Hansen Festival entertainment lineup for Saturday includes Giveaway, Yaka-ku Seinenkai Eisa, variety band RO4, 8-Ball, a local rock group that’s been around since 2005 and scored big with their single Speed Master, which became the title tune for the popular Japanese movie Speed Master in 2007, and Drum Jam. The drummer band sponsored by Armed Forces Entertainment performs at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and again on Sunday at 8:35 p.m. The remainder of Sunday’s lineup includes Giveaway, Ballet Folklorico, Kinku-Seinenkai, hip hop dancers T-Da, oldies rockers Jet, and RO4. A laser show wraps the Sunday entertainment package at 9:40 p.m.

There’s plenty to eat, drink and see as service members and locals get a chance to play at the amusement rides, the stage, and at the food booths. There’s also a Kiddie Land for children.

A key element of all Marine Corps Community Services festivals are the giveaways and prizes offered by sponsors. This year, lucky attendees have a chance to win two round-trip tickets to the U.S., courtesy of United Airlines and Omega World Travel. This year’s Hansen Festival is sponsored in part by Miller. MCCS encourages responsible drinking, and reminds visitors not to drink and drive. Daiko taxi services will be available.

Free shuttle buses will provide transportation to and from designated parking lots on Camp Hansen. No outside alcohol, bottles or coolers will be allowed.
