The “Saturday Evening Water Splash” will be taking place on Jeonju’s Dongmun Art Street during the Dongmun Art Street Festival from August 9 and 23, 2014.

During the festival period, there will be water activities and people roaming the streets with water pistols on Saturday evenings from 6pm to 8pm. The “Saturday Evening Water Splash” would surely give Jeonju Hanok Village visitors a unique experience while they stroll around this traditional village in the evening.

The fun-filled festival also features a gogo-jang (a popular gathering place in the 1980s where people rollerblade and dance to upbeat music), street performances, a night market, and an art market. The major festivities take place from 6pm to 8pm, but visitors can also come earlier and enjoy other programs such as the retro fashion parade in the afternoon (1pm). Other programs such as the DJ concert, 7080 dance, and hip hop competitions take place from 7pm to 9pm.
