Some pictures from Yeon Deung Hoe (Lotus Lantern Festival)

Lotus lantern festival is an ancient Korean folk festival that has thousands years history.

The festival is to celebrte the birth of Buddha. Although Korea isn’t really a Busshist country, Lotus Lantern Festival is rather huge of its kind and celebrated by everyone in the coubtry.

There was a parade in one fo Seoul’s main streets and both locals and visitors came experience the festival. I’ve selected a few pictures taken there to share.
