Mangsang Beach Festival 2013 will take place at the Mangsang Beach area, in Donghae-si, Gangwon-do, from July 12 to August 15, 2013.

The festival kicks off on the same day as the beach’s opening date. The beach will be the setting for various performances including traditional music, acoustic guitar, dance and DJ concerts. Visitors can witness Yongwangje, a Sea Dragon King ritual performed to pray for a good catch and the ship’s safety. There will also be a fireworks display, competitions (singing, swimming and beach football), kayak and pedal boat rentals, and hands-on activities such as digging for clams.

Admission to the festival is free of charge.
