Chuseok festival

Chuseok, Korean Thanksgiving and harvest celebration, was two weeks ago. Our local Korean American society always puts on a BIG celebration and this one was no different. The festival was held at a local park and the weather was absolutely gorgeous. There were dancing, drumming, and tae kwon do demonstrations, lots of games for the kids, and of course, an authentic feast.

This group always has great kites to fly at their events

One of the activities was a see saw that you stand on instead of sitting on. It seemed pretty dangerous because you are supposed to jump on the ends to make the other person go up in the air. We didn't last long on here

By the time we got through the line they were all out of bulgogi :( but the other stuff was pretty good

We had a great day seeing lots of adoption friends and meeting new families with kiddos from Korea. It is such a blessing to be in a community that strives to keep traditions alive
