Welcome to another week of Travel Photo Thursday, and Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers. Have some turkey and pumpkin pie for me! Seoul’s Cheonggyecheon Stream has been brightly lit for the past couple of weeks with the lantern lights of the annual Seoul Lantern Festival. Having the weather cooperate was no easy feat, but finally, last Sunday (the last day) was fine enough to make the trip from Daejeon. This year’s theme was very traditional…have a look.
To join in the Travel Photo Thursday fun simply post a photo on your blog. Return here and place your link in the Mr. Linky at the bottom of this post.

Dressed in traditional garb…
The year of the dragon…
Playing traditional instruments…
Swimming along the stream…(and my favorite lanterns)
Doesn’t this remind you of Vegas??
This had to be the weirdest lantern of the night… Child from Canada …(“The caption read…This child from Canada is wearing warm clothing made of animal fur and is holding a spear. He seems thoroughly prepared to go hunting.” ) What the !!!!
Here you can get an idea of how big the crowds were.
The Seoul Lantern Festival is an annual event, held during the first two weeks of November. The lanterns are lit, weather permitting, from 5pm to 11pm each evening. Arrive early, if you want to beat the crowds. Admission is free.
Have you been to a similar festival anywhere in the world?
