Lotus Lantern Festival

We participated in this festival as part of Buddha's birthday celebration. It was very busy and a lot of fun. We made our own lanterns... and stole the discarded ones, and we also experienced some Buddhist stuff. The parade was held in Seoul, from Dongdaemun Station to Jonggak Station of Seoul Line 1.

So this is where that photo originated? I've seen it in a lot of websites! Good one!

It was originally in izsak02.com ( as per the watermark ), which is now hikecampandtravel.com it seems. I see it used in a few websites as well. It's a nice photo. - SeoulSearcher - 2013/11/01 11:10:34 EDT
