Spring Flower Festival takes place every year from early to mid April in Yunjung-ro, a stretch of road near the National Aseembly in Yeouido.
To most people in Seoul, the word ‘spring flower’ instantly reminds them of ‘cherry blossom’, as the Han-river Yeouido Spring Flower Festival represents the spring of Korea with its beautiful streets embellished with flowers.
The cherry blossoms bloom around the Yeoduido’s beltway of Yunjung-ro, but the beauty of it is at its peak from the south end of Yeouido Park to the annex building of KBS. During the month of April, these streets are overcrowded with people enjoying the gorgeous cherry blossoms.
Various cultural/artistic activities including dance, play, pantomime, band concert, puppet show, and street performances are showcased during the festival period.
