[Special Feature] The Capital Summer Festival Begins

The Heimdallr Summer Festival has begun again this year, roughly a month later than other areas. The festival created to celebrate the end of the War of the Lions 250 years ago is only held for three days in July, but those three days are jam packed with important events and functions, so I'm sure many of you readers are looking forward to it.

♦Two Celebrations and Other Events♦

The first day this year will see the Summer Races at the Heimdallr Racetrack, the Imperial family-sponsored celebration at Valflame Palace, and in the evening, a celebration will be held at the Villa Soleil sponsored by City Hall. Important people from in and outside the empire have been invited to both events and Prince Olivert is expected to attend the latter.

The second day features a special performance at the Heimdallr Opera House and a special Mass at the Grand Cathedral. Day three is the Imperial Family Parade, the Summer Festival Concert at Mater Park, and twenty-thousand fireworks will light the sky that night.

[Breaking News] Armed Foreign Group Arrested

A group of nearly 100 foreigners were arrested in the capital on July 16th. They were armed and camouflaged, but all were apprehended and given over to the Imperial Army Intelligence Division and the Railway Military Police. This is a shocking incident just before the Summer Festival, and while the Chronicle has not learned their identities, a military commentator says: 'They're definitely Calvardians, or at least involved with them.'

According to a well-informed source, the seizing of a suspicious vessel by the Crimson Wings and the mobilization of the 4th Armored Division were just groundless rumors. If troops had been mobilized, the first day of the Summer Festival wouldn't have began safely as it did.

♦Two Heroes Emerge from Thors Campuses♦

The armed group was apprehended by students from both Thors campuses, adding to their deeds from last month. They were following the orders of commanders, containing and nullifying the armed group after they fled under the capital's streets. It's said they cooperated with the Bracer Guild and actually captured 70 percent of the armed group.

In response to this, City Hall hurriedly commended the students of both campuses this morning. The head cadet of the main campus, Crown Prince Cedric, shook the hand of the Ashen Chevalier, Rean Schwarzer. It was a scene of two young heroes of the new age.

[Incident] Heimdallr Bank President's Son Questioned

Also yesterday morning, the Heimdallr Bank president's son, Dario Giscard, was arrested by the Imperial Defense Force. He was charged with kidnapping and using a weapon in an urban area. He is currently being questioned.
