Busan City is hosting the 3rd Busan Port Lighting Festival from Nov. 9 to 18 near Dongsam-dong National Maritime Museum in Yeongdo District.

This year’s festival will take place at the National Maritime Museum which opened in July this year, presenting a beautiful harmony of sea and light. This year’s theme is “Soaring.” Dreaming of soaring up and presenting various light arts using sky and sea and earth in multidimensional ways is the concept of the festival.

At the Busan Port Lighting Festival, you can enjoy various art works related to light from various artists. At the Luminaire Square, a light square is lit up with ten thousands of light bulbs. Castle wall shaped spatella, tunnel shaped Galilei and pillar shaped risolati are just some of the various lights designed to fit the place, with exotic and fancy lights. In the light exhibition hall there will be Media Art, history of light, night view photograph and fancy light sculptures.

There are programs prepared such as air balloon performance, flying in air balloons lit up with colorful lights, which is expected to be a hit item at the light festival. Glow-in-the-dark face painting and drawing contest are some of the programs that families with children can participate together. There is also a wishing light event where people can write their wishes and float the small hope of light to the sky. There are also special concerts featuring famous singers as well as media art show, youth concert, night of jazz and party.
