Pohang - Korea
In South Korea, Pohang is called “the city of sunshine and fire” as it is the first place in South Korea to see the sun rise and also the location for an annual fireworks display.
Each summer, people flock to Bukbu beach and to the park on the bank of Hyeongsan river to witness the most spectacular pyrotechnic displays and cutting edge fireworks, together with many performances of Korean traditional dance and music.
The 13th Pohang International Fireworks Festival 2016 was held from July 28-31 on Yeongildae beach and sports park on the bank of Hyeongsan river. As usual, colourful fireworks illuminated the sky over Pohang. A total of approximately 100,000 fireworks were set off. It’s no wonder Pohang International Fireworks Festival is always regarded as one of the top summer festivals in South Korea.
