The biggest local festival, the “89th Ishinomaki Kawabiraki (“River Opening”) Festival,” (The Ishinomaki Kawabiraki Festival: Lead by Kawamura Magobei, during the Edo period efforts were made to restructure, or open up, the channel of the Kitakami River allowing Ishinomaki to prosper.
Hence the name Kawabiraki or “River Opening” Festival.) Most of the shops throughout Ishinomaki are still closed due to the tsunami. A few have recently reopened, but pedestrian traffic has dropped off dramatically. However, today is the festival that everyone in Ishinomaki has been eagerly anticipating. The shopping district has once again regained the crowds it had during Kawabiraki Festivals before the disaster.
The first day of the festival started off on a ceremony for remembering Mr. Magobei Kawamura and was followed by a service to commemorate the victims of the Great East Japan Earthquake, in which service a total of 5,000 paper lanterns were floated down to comfort the spirits of the victims and fireworks were set off with wishes for recovery from the disaster.

The second day continued to follow a pattern of exciting events such as the parade featured by marching bands, the dedicatory tug-of-war competition to the god of Nawabari shrine, Magobei-boat rowing match and so on, as many as 6,000 fireworks being set off to wrap up the festival.
