Korea Festival of Water, Fire, & Lights - Jinju Namgang Yudeung Festival

Sep 25, 2019

The annual Jinju Namgang Yudeung Festival is scheduled to take place from October 1 to 13 around the area of Namgang River, brightening the riverside with beautifully lit lanterns. The festival originated from the custom of floating lanterns to communicate military orders during the Battle of Jinjuseong Fortress (October 5-10, 1592). Based on this year’s theme “Water, Fire, Lights, and our Wishes,” the festival will have a huge floating lantern on display along with other exhibitions. Hands-on activities as well as a fireworks show and a lantern street parade will also keep visitors entertained.
