The Historic Hangang River, Illuminated through Light
The Seoul Lantern Festival will take place along Cheonggyecheon Stream from Nov. 4th through Nov. 20th, 2016. The Hangang River has great historical and cultural significance to Seoul, Korea, and Seoulites. Hangang means “large river,” and the river has been a vital part of the daily lives of locals over many years and generations. This year, the Seoul Lantern Festival aims to show elements of the historic, cultural, and everyday life of the Hangang River through lanterns. The unique and colorful lanterns will be a sight to behold!
There are activities open for public participation, such as putting up a wish lantern, hanging a wish note, and more. There will also be food stalls and food trucks operating throughout the festival! Enjoy the lanterns, make a wish, and treat yourself to tasty street food at the Seoul Lantern Festival.
