Set against the pristine backdrop of Baegun Valley in Pocheon-si, Gyeonggi-do, the Pocheon Baegun Valley Dongjangkun Festival, which started on December 28, will run until February 2, 2014.
This year marks the festival’s 10th anniversary. With the theme “Sing Sing Ice Party,” the festival is jam-packed with events, entertainment, recreation and food. Surrounded by an ice fortress, the festival grounds feature a snow-covered garden where visitors can catch rabbits running around, an igloo experience zone, ice sculptures and ice sledding slopes. Food offerings include Korean lunch boxes, samgyeopsal and makgeolli.
Admission to the festival is free of charge; however, fees may apply for some hands-on programs.
