Daegu is getting ready for its unique festival to be held next month. More than 4,000 residents are expected to participate in the annual festival named "Colorful Festival" which opens on May 5.
The two-day festival includes a variety of events and performances, but the highlight of the festival will be a parade which walks along a 2-km route through the main streets of the city on the first day of the festival.
This year's parade is expected to be even more "colorful" as as it will bring more participants from eight cities in four countries such as China, Japan, Russia and Vietnam. They will present exotic dances and other performances, wearing their traditional costumes.
The finale of the festival will feature cheerful music and spectacular dance performances as the city will transform into a lively nightclub at night for about an hour before closing.
Visitors can purchase handicrafts and various souvenirs from local vendors or get hands-on experiences by making crafts or traditional costumes.
Diverse street foods will be available at 60 food trucks, with offerings including homemade hamburgers, lamb skewers and many others.
The city is accessible by air or bullet train. It just takes two hours from Seoul to Daegu or 50 minutes from Busan.
