Introduction
When April arrives, Hwagae region looks as if it is carpeted in snow. In fact, it is the region's beautiful white cherry blossoms that transform the landscape into a soft, downy wonderland. One of the most popular attractions of the festival is "The 10ri Cherry Blossom Road" (ri is a traditional Korean measurement unit; 10ri is equal to approximately 4km). It is also known as the "marriage road," as legend says if lovers walk down this road while holding hands, they will get married and live happily together forever.

Apart from the stunning beauty of the cherry blossoms, there is a series of exciting seasonal programs and cultural events for visitors to enjoy. Nearby attractions include the historic Hwagae Market and numerous restaurants that serve the province’s traditional cuisines, such as euneo hoe (sliced raw sweetfish) and chamge tang (spicy mitten crab stew).
Programs
Ssireum (traditional wrestling) contest, talent show, local products exhibition, etc.
