Introduction

The Busan Lotus Lantern Festival is an annual tradition that provides visitors with an opportunity to experience Buddhist cutlure through the many activities offered. To celebrate Buddha's birthday, splendid lotus lanterns in different shapes and sizes will be on display.

About a month before the festival, the festival committee, supported by the Busan Buddhism Association, starts to invite temples and individuals to participate in the festival. Around 1,700 temples, groups, and related organizations prepare diverse programs such as making lotus lanterns, sharing traditional tea, eating temple food, and celebratory performances.

The main events are the Grand Buddhist Ceremony and the Lotus Lantern Parade, both of which attract a lot of spectators regardless of their personal religous beliefs. The Lotus Lantern Parade, followed by the Buddhist ceremony, will take place from Busan Station, Gudeok Playground, and Gwangbok-dong.
