The Utazu Autumn Festival held in late October every year is a combination of the annual festivals of the Ubushina Shrine and the Shiogama Shrine. The Drum floats join in following the Mikoshi (portable shrine) Parade that still retains the olden style. Kagawa Prefecture has a lot of drum floats, and the specialty of the festival held here is that the magnificent floats pass through narrow streets. When the white fringes of the drum floats are about to touch the eaves of the houses and the shouts reverberate through the town, the festival reaches its climax.
