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.
