Seondeung Festival 2013 kicked off on November 30 and will run until February 14, 2014 at the area around Seondeung Plaza in Hwacheon-gun, Gangwon-do.
Mountain trout, Hwacheon’s local specialty, will be the theme for this year’s festival.

Seondeung Festival visitors will be able to see about 24,000 mountain trout lanterns on exhibit and a world traditional lamp display. Other events at the festival include writing wishes on cards and various performances.
