The beautiful harmony in the night sky of Busan, Busan Fireworks Festival
Fireworks in the autumn night that hugs everyone
The shining Gwangandaegyo Bridge begins coming into view. As the Gwangan Bridge gets closer, it becomes so crowded you can’t even find a gap to set your foot in. However, the people seem bright like the fireworks they’re waiting for, and you enjoy feeling the chilly sea breeze on this pleasant autumn night.
What items can you prepare to make your Busan Fireworks Festival experience more enjoyable? Above all, you should pay attention to warmth. It’s warm during the day but very windy and cold in the sea area in the autumn night. So it’s a good idea to wear a warm coat and take a blanket even if you feel a bit hot when you go out. During the festival, Gwangalli is crowded, and it’s not easy to get back to where you were sitting once the fireworks start. So make sure you have something to eat and drink while enjoying the festival, and make a pit stop before you sit down.
Go the fireworks place early, and share food with people to enjoy the festival together. It may take longer to wait, but you’ll soon forget it with the joyous festival atmosphere and more and more people gathering around.
The fireworks start from the sky over the barge floating in front of Gwangandaegyo Bridge, pop up over the bridge, and then finish over the wide ocean behind the bridge. Everybody is mesmerized with the fireworks that fill the entire night's sky.
The night sea and sky, music and fireworks, and vitality of the people and night view create beautiful harmony on this memorable Busan night. This is the Busan Fireworks Festival!
