Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday. Korea is getting ready to pretty much shut down for the next week to celebrate Chuseok. This is the biggest holiday of the year here; the equivalent of Canadian or American Thanksgiving. Everyone travels home, graves are cleaned and ancestors are worshipped. The price of airline tickets also goes through the roof, so I won’t be traveling out of country despite having a week off. However, I will be heading off to Seoul to celebrate a friend’s birthday and to catch the Broadway musical Wicked. Then, next weekend I am off to Andong’s International Mask Dance Festival. This will be the third time that I have attended, and I never tire of watching dance performances from the around the world. Today’s photos are from the last time I was at the Andong Festival in 2010.

A Mask Collage…I put this collage together from a group of photos that I took of masks made by people who attended the festival.
Admission to the festival is free, and this year it runs from September 27 to October 7th. You can find out more at the official website …Andong Mask Festival .
