July is the peak season for lotus flowers in Korea. The Buyeo Seodong Lotus Festival 2013, one of the most famous lotus flower festivals in Korea, is set to take place at Seodong Park and Gungnamji Pond from July 18 through 21.
In its 11th year, the festival will offer many different hands-on activities at the huge lotus flower plantation in Seodong Park such as lotus face painting, lotus handkerchief making, lotus flower origami, and lotus flower rubbing. Various events will also take place like a lotus flower photo exhibit, lotus food sampling and display, parades, Korean traditional music concerts and fireworks.
Visiting the festival in the morning is the best time to enjoy the lotus flowers as their buds blossom in the morning and close in the evening.
