Fall Fun Series - Seoul International Fireworks Festival

Greetings, everyone! I hope this post finds you well, and if you happen to be reading this from any of the areas in the path of Hurricane Matthew, I hope your reading this means the danger has passed and you are safe. For my Fall event I'd like to showcase the Seoul International Fireworks Festival. 


The Seoul International Fireworks Festival is s a fall-time festival with lots of events and performances in the sunny hours before the fireworks. For the fireworks ceremony, usually South Korea teams up with fireworks teams from two other countries. Last year the visiting teams were from the USA and Philippines. A huge portion of my family is Filipino and celebrate that heritage, so I kind of feel cheated from being able to see a display from my home country and my family's originating country. Ah, what can you do?

This year, however, the festival's guests will be from Japan and Spain! In any case, it will be a sight to behold. If you want some more information, you can visit this website, which has all of the festival information in English.

Michael and I had planned to attend this year's festival, as it's on October 8th (in other words, tomorrow), but we just got word that his work is having an event that he and I may be expected to attend. Sigh.

My fall melts for this week were L3's Pumpkin Apple Pie Crust and Beezy's Marshmallow Pumpkin Bread

  2. Oh, I do hope you guys get a chance to go or at least see some of the fireworks from a distance? My family is into fireworks displays and into heritage actually, so this sounds interesting. Does Seoul do fireworks for any other holidays or festive occasions?

    1. Michael's work got in the way and we weren't able to see the fireworks this year. :'( Bummer, but we can always hope for next year!
      There are a lot of smaller events with fireworks throughout the year, but nothing as big as this particular event. For something close to it we would have to go south to Busan or Jeju Island in the summer.

  3. That sounds like a blast! I love a great fireworks show, though my neck always ends up getting stiff #oldladyhere. Hope you guys got a chance to go!

    1. The last time I went to a fireworks show was when I was 16, so my old lady neck hadn't taken full effect. I'm convinced my constant video game playing helps keep my neck muscles built up. XD
