Okinawa products on the line at Industrial Fair

Date Posted: 2012-01-27

The Okinawa City Industrial Fair kicks off a two-day run Saturday, presenting a myriad of Okinawan-made products, while at the same time making the fair a fun time with live entertainment and family activities.

This weekend’s Okinawa City Industrial Festival is a combination of introduction to Okinawa-made products and two days of sheer family fun. The 35th annual Industrial Fair takes place at Okinawa Prefecture Comprehensive Park at Hiyene in Okinawa City, operating 10 a.m. – 7 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. Sunday. The Industrial Festival Executive Committee says the two-day event will feature Okinawa-produced and processed goods, wooden handicrafts, Ryukyu musical instruments, homemade pottery, awamori, clothing, building materials, and a wide variety of Okinawa foods and special goods. Festival visitors will be able to observe Okinawa products being manufactured, and can purchase many of the items on the spot.

The event hall will also have traditional music and dance, along with food and drinks. The fair’s intent is to promote Okinawa City citizens’ lives and livelihoods, explaining the products made and how they came to be. There will also be experts from agricultural industries who will show how to plant vegetables, make flowers, and care for green trees.

Organizers anticipate thousands to turn out for the industrial fair, both for the food and music as well as the products themselves. The accent is on locally produced / manufactured goods.
