Grateful drummer - a Haiku

Niihama Taiko Festival... Taiko-dai (2.5 ton floats) are carried by about 150 men through the streets of Niihama.
Each float has a large taiko drum in its middle which is beat rhythmically throughout the night.

This festival is to give thanks for an abundant autumn harvest.
