It is billed as the biggest Marine Corps festival of the year on Okinawa.
The Futenma Flightline Fair, which calls itself the “best of the best” in annual entertainment, kicks off Saturday at 3pm, and runs Sunday until 10pm.
As the name implies, all the action takes place along the sprawling Marine Corps Air Base flightline, which will be closed to air traffic. The base will open its gates to all Okinawa residents.
The festival will again be delighting Americans and locals alike with top notch entertainment, free of course, game booths and amusement rides, Kiddle Land for children, and enough cultural foods to appease the heartiest of appetites. Organizers do stress that pets are not permitted at the Futenma Flightline Fair.
