Drummers at Shimizu Harbor Festival!

On the first week end of August every year a festival is held in Shimizu Harbor, Shimizu Ku (formerly Shimizu City), Shizuoka City.
I finally managed to visit it on its last yesterday and one of the events that particularly attracted me were the drums played by different local amateur groups!
