Flower-like rings of color illuminate the night sky at a drive-in firework display in Muroran
Flower-like illuminations in the night sky were enjoyed by city residents through the windows of approximately 500 vehicles that almost filled a special venue adjacent to the Mitara Muroran Michi-no-Eki (roadside station), where a “Drive-in Muroran Fireworks Display” was held on the night of March 20. As infections from the Coronavirus continue, participants got together in a bid to restore some vigor to the region.
At 7 p.m., when the fireworks began, the temperature in the vicinity of the venue was a chilly 1℃. The display, comprising Start Mines and a variety of large and small pyrotechnics, lit up the night sky for approximately 40 minutes. Children could be seen clapping inside the vehicles as the fireworks were launched in time with music played on the local FM station, ‘FM View’.
With many firework displays canceled due to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, this event was planned by an executive committee comprising City officials and local enterprises, with operating funds raised from admission fees and crowd funding. The event itself was run by volunteer staff, with everyone involved working as one to ensure preparations were complete.
