Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival

Thousands of people have taken part in a contest to catch fish in a frozen river in South Korea. The Hwacheon Sancheoneo Ice Festival draws nearly a million visitors every year. The festival is an entertaining opportunity for children and parents alike.

Event Programs: Programs are organized into four major categories, with the main themes being ice and snow. The first program related to the mountain trout includes ice fishing (a hole is cut in the ice of the stream), lure fishing, and catching trout with your bare hands. Unlike other programs that are free of charge, these require an admission fee. The ice programs are ice sledding, snow sledding, ice tubing, and the football competition played on ice. Children's programs include the snowman event (children can have a picture taken with a snowman), building an ice castle, a sledding train, and a sled-driving test.

Adding to the fun of the festival is a buffet, which includes mountain trout dishes, and the opportunity to dine at eateries that offer local specialties of Hwacheon. Check out the Traditional Experience Venue, and concert, too.
