Gifu Ume Matsuri
Chindon-ya do advatising, though they are pretty uncommon now.
They publicize a sale of shop opening or at some local shopping mall, changing of "pachinko" machines, etc.
"Chindon" consists of two words, one is "chin" which comes from the sound of
the gong, and "don" from the sound of drum they play.
