[서울=뉴시스] Reporter Jin-ah Kang = The lantern parade held on a large scale for the first time in three years since Corona 19 lit up the light of the city.

The Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism held a parade of lanterns from Heunginjimun to the Jongno area and Jogyesa Temple at around 7:00 pm on April 30 the previous day.

The lantern parade, called the flower of the Lotus Lantern Festival, was decorated with tens of thousands of procession lanterns and majestic lanterns made by participating organizations that day. At the forefront, there was a six-bearing offering lantern, which symbolizes a family offering offerings to the Buddha together by three generations, from grandfather to granddaughter.

In addition, various lanterns such as Juakbicheon, an imaginary character, holding a daegeum and Janggu to pray for peace, a fire-breathing dragon, and a turtle ship followed. At the Lotus Lantern Festival, which was resumed after three years after social distancing was completely lifted, many citizens also visited the streets and watched the lantern parade.

On the first day, the traditional culture field and the lotus lantern play are held.

The Traditional Culture Madang is held from 12:00 noon to 7:00 pm in front of Jogyesa Temple and at Ujeongguk-ro for various experience events. At Woojung Park, a lotus lantern making event is held for foreigners. At the Anguk-dong intersection stage, from 12 noon to 6 p.m., street performances, pungmul, lotus song, and children’s performances are held at the Anguk-dong intersection. The Lotus Lantern Parade will be held once again in Insa-dong and Jongno areas, with the Yeonhui dan as the center starting at 7 pm.

This year’s Lotus Lantern Festival was held under the theme of ‘Into the daily life where hope blooms again’. At the end of 2019, the Lotus Lantern Festival, which had been reduced due to the spread of Corona 19, was resumed to inform the value of the festival and contain the hope for the recovery of daily life.
