Jinju Namgang Yudeung Festival originates from the floating lanterns that were used during the Jinjuseong Fortress Battle of the Imjin War (1592-1598) as a military strategy to prevent Japanese troops from wading the Namgang River. The highlights of the festival are the floating of lanterns along the Namgang River and the parade of lanterns created by local students themselves. In addition, the festival has various events and programs including fireworks show, water lighting show, cultural performances and more.
