Ever wanted to visit Japan but found that, unsurprisingly, tickets to travel halfway across the world can be a little pricey? Well, this weekend is your chance to experience for yourself what Japanese culture has to offer and win an incredible round trip to the city of Tokyo! Japan Festival Canada is back in the GTA for its 90th year this weekend and it's going to be awesome.
This weekend, Aug. 24-25, head over to Celebration Square in Mississauga to take part in this really great festival. Over 20 food and drink vendors will be there to cater to the community, offering a variety of tastes of Japan.
The 90th edition of the event is also free admission and pet-friendly, so you can enjoy live music and dance with your fur baby, rain or shine. The festival runs from noon to 10 p.m. on Aug. 24 and 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Aug. 25.
At the annual party, you can expect to dive into some delicious food, great music, and entertaining shows. You also have the chance of winning a free round trip to Japan! How cool is that?
In order to win a chance to go on this incredible adventure, you must enter online and be in attendance at the festival. The ultimate Dream Prize includes a roundtrip, three-night Suite Room accommodation at Imperial Hotel in Tokyo for two guests as well as two nights at Tokyu Hotels, also for two guests.
But that's not all, oh no! The winners of that grand prize will also receive a $1,000 Travel Voucher and a complimentary food tour, again for you and your guest.
This is just one of the prizes available to win, and all of the four available prizes offer a minimum of a one-person roundtrip trip to Japan. You only have five days left to enter and have a chance to win one of these amazing jackpots!
The prizes are just the tip of the iceberg, though.
Festival attendees will also be treated to Japanese culture shows in traditional Japanese garments. With over 10 special performances, there's something for everyone to enjoy.
Don't forget, this festival is this weekend only so if you plan to enter in the draw, you must be in attendance.
How's that for an awesome late-summer party?
