Lo­tus Lan­tern Fes­ti­val Seoul April 25 –27

Business Traveler (USA) - - THE SCENE -

A cel­e­bra­tion of the Buddha’s com­ing into this world, the month-long Lo­tus Lan­tern Fes­ti­val cul­mi­nates in cel­e­bra­tions April 25 – 29. Over the weekend, thou­sands gather to en­joy stage per­for­mances by monks clad in col­or­ful robes. Hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude lo­tus lan­tern mak­ing booths – rel­a­tively easy to do, but said to help one at­tain en­light­en­ment in the next life. There are pa­rades, ex­hi­bi­tions, singing and dancing per­for­mances. On the evening of April 26, over 100,000 lo­tus lanterns will light up the Seoul sky.
