The Kikuchi Summer Festival was held in the Kikuchi Civic Field on August 6, 2016, and it was crowded with many visitors. The theme was “Recovery to Brighten ” hoping to recover from the Kumamoto Earthquake, and to brighten the town.

The festival started with a Calligraphy performance by members of the Calligraphy Club of Kikuchi Sr. High School, a Taiko Drum performance by students of Kikuchi Agriculture Sr. High, a music performance by the Brass Band of Kikuchi North Jr. High school, and continued with live music  and dance performances.

The second part started with the "White Dragon" performance. When the two giant White Dragons following the two baby Dragons started performing with the sound of firecrackers, the crowd broke into loud cheers. The high-spirited call,”Say-yah, Say-Yah!” echoed in the field.

At the climax of the festival, colorful fireworks lit up the night sky.
