The festival gives attention to fireflies, which have been designated as one of Korea’s natural monuments. Of the various programs of the festival, the nighttime firefly exploration event, which starts at 8 p.m., is the most popular. There are other hands-on events to help visitors experience the fireflies in their natural environment, such as trout fishing and rafting.
