This Weekend in Fukuoka (May. 26~27)

Stuck for something to do this weekend? We’ve got you covered. Here are Fukuoka Now staff’s picks for weekend activities for Saturday and Sunday (May. 26~27)…

Event 1 ::: Dance Expression Kyushu 2012 5/26 (Sat.) @ Nishitetsu Hall
Dancers from across Kyushu will gather for this one-day-only event. Watch as they dance across genres- from the salsa, to the Argentine tango, to Latin dance- all in the center of Tenjin! With colourful costumes and festive music, the audience is likely to get involved.

Event 2 ::: Autopolis Super 2&4 Race 2012 5/26 (Sat.) ~5/27 (Sun.) @ Oita
A fiercely competitive weekend of racing comes to Oita this weekend! The Autopolis Super 2&4 Race 2012 runs for two days, May 26~27, with both two-wheel and four-wheel race categories. Fans of bikes will be impressed by the “ST600” 600cc races, in which riders carve up the tracks on the same types of 600cc motorbikes that can be bought commercially. But if it’s formula racing you’re into, the FN (Formula Nippon) will get your blood pumping. FN is Japan’s top level of single-seater racing, and the FN races at Autopolis are known for qualifying players for acceptance into F1. Over the two days you can also indulge in the food festival or see the drivers and race queens up close at the event stage.
