Sasebo to launch surprise fireworks on Dec. 26

In an effort to bring some holiday cheer, Sasebo City will light up the night sky with a surprise firework display on Dec. 26.

Though the location and time will not be announced beforehand to avoid crowds, those in the Sasebo area will want to stay tuned that evening for the 5-minute show. Organizers said the fireworks will be launched from 21 different locations to ensure that as many people as possible get to see them safely.

The secret display was organized by the Sasebo Chamber of Commerce which had to postpone it’s Sasebo Seaside Festival in the summer due to COVID-19.

Although we must still be careful to keep safe during the pandemic, the lights of heartwarming fireworks sure will give us cheers in the end of 2020. So, don’t miss it!
