Purple Day booth at Sakae Bon Odori Festival!

On 4th of August, Purple Day Japan attended to one of the famous festivals in Nagoya, Sakae Bon Odori.

On the day, the main road in Sakae was closed to let various participants have their exhibition booth. Purple Day Japan took this valuable opportunity and attended to the festival first time to appeal to many people. In the festival, we opened a small booth with the purpose of educating people about epilepsy awareness as well as distributing and selling various Purple Day goods. We also prepared a small box for charity money so that willing visitors might do some financial contribution.  

The important part of our attendance was the pro wrestling event that took place right in the middle of the road that many people crossed. Around a hundred people gathered and waited for the wrestling to start, after which, surprisingly, our hero Purple Man came out to wrestle with villains. It was indeed a great opportunity for many to know about the activities of Purple Day and its heroic character Purple Man.

The Sakae Bon Odori Festival was indeed a success for Purple Day. We will keep expanding Purple Day’s reach and connection by participating in other festivals around the neighborhood.
