What is the Water Gun Festival?
First held in 2013, the Water Gun Festival sees the streets of Sinchon, a busy university neighborhood in Seoul, closed to traffic to allow visitors to participate in a well organized water fight with a different theme each year.
Highlights of the festival include an opening ceremony, an umbrella performance, a water concert and a unique activity known as a 'water gun wedding'.
There are giant water slides and a host of other fun sideshows dotted around the streets for visitors to make the most of their time at the festival.
Need to know
The festival reserves special areas for families and children to take part in the fun at a more leisurely pace, so the event really does cater for all ages.
