JINJU LATERN FESTIVAL
The Jinju Lantern Festival happens for two weeks in October.
The river that runs through Jinju was dotted with hundreds of lanterns.
They had a variety of festival foods.
|Dried squid and silkworm pupae|
|Full roasted pig|
This event also allowed for businesses and neighboring cities to contribute their own lanterns to the festival. Here are a few of them:
|Changwon's! Nubija with Pioomi!|
There are literally thousands of lanterns at the festival of all kinds. They had life size lanterns of people and bigger-than-life-size lantern flotillas depicting ancient and mythological events.
They also had spanning archways lined with hundreds and hundreds of red-glowing shoebox sized lanterns.
And of course the best views are at night.
