Shimonoseki Kaikyo Festival Schedule May 3

Can anyone point me to a schedule of events for the Shimonoseki Kaikyo festival on May 3? I'll be coming in from Fukuoka that day, and would like to know what time I need to be in Shimonoseki for the activities. Thanks.

Not so much information in English but you might be able to find in Japanese using Google translation or something. The festival runs from May 2-4.

Thanks very much. I kept looking for 2014, and finally noticed they were dating it in Heisei years. Those images are just what I needed.

I'll keep looking for the updated info, but for now I'll assume last year's schedule is close to this year's.
