The Seoul Lantern Festival is an annual event held during the first two weeks in November at the Cheonggyecheon Stream in downtown Seoul. The huge lanterns float in the stream and are admired by hundreds of thousands during the two week event. The weather this past Saturday was perfect, and it was literally wall to wall people. The event is free to attend.
