13th Busan Fireworks Festival Kicks off October 28 in Gwangalli Beach

BUSAN--(Korea Newswire)--Known as one of the best fall festivals in Korea, the Busan Fireworks Festival held every October around Gwangalli Beach and Gwangandaegyo Bridge in Busan attracts roughly 1 million Korean and overseas spectators.

Under the theme of October's Serenade of LOVE, the 13th Busan Fireworks Festival will take place on Saturday, October 28th this year in the Gwangalli Beach area.

Fireworks are shot from barges on the sea near Igidae, Gwangalli Beach and Dongbaekseom Island to create a three-dimensional and dynamic fireworks show that people in multiple locations can view. ‘Niagara Falls’ and ‘Color lguassu Falls’ fireworks displays, that appear to cascade from the Gwangandaegyo Bridge and twenty-five-inch supersize fireworks are the biggest reason you should come to this year’s festival. Parente Fireworks teams from Italy are also invited for the fireworks showcase.

Early festival arrivals can enjoy street performances at Gwangalli Beach. Preliminary fireworks will begin at 6:00 p.m. and again between 7:00 p.m. to 7:58 p.m. before the multi-fireworks show begins at 8:25 p.m. until 9:00 p.m.
