A thousand balloons will be set loose into the sky of Itoshima, carrying people’s hope to get over the new coronavirus pandemic and recent rain disaster. The largest-scale balloon release in the Itoshima area will occur as part of ‘Magnet Garden @ Futamigaura Beach,’ a music-and-food event started on August 1. DJs and orchestras are invited to perform great music and provide a space for people to get relaxed and re-energized from hardships. The event runs beach cleanings, too. Source: PR TIMES
