I watched the parade of Lotus Lantern Festival in Insadong, South Korea. If you want to go to Korea on May, I think this event is worth to be seen ^^ here are some pictures of the parade. Lotus Lantern Festival is held to celebrate Buddha's birthday. This event is a big festival, with lanterns everywhere and exhibition in Jongno street and around Jogyesa and Bongeunsa temples.
