What is it like celebrating the 4th of July in Korea? Well, until last week, I didn’t know the answer to this question. Actually, I didn’t even know if we would celebrate. Thankfully, our dear friends the Diamonds invited us to celebrate the 4th by lighting off a few fireworks on the beach.
Fireworks in Korea are a regular occurrence. Most major festivals will have a big fireworks show, and if you go to a beach at night, someone will be lighting off a few roman candles or sparklers. You can find small fireworks at various stores all-year-round. Where do you find the big ones–we have no idea!
We gathered what fireworks we could find and headed to the beach. Jared brought his new camera along, and he had fun experimenting with shooting at night.
Chelsea pulled her magic by dancing behind us with a sparkler during these long-exposure shots.
Happy late 4th of July everyone!
