JINJU, South Korea (NBC/EBU) - Fireworks filled the sky over the Nam River in South Korea.
The display was part of a lantern festival on Tuesday night, which included around 1,500 giant lanterns shaped like traditional performers and Korean icons.
The festival's origin reportedly dates back to the 1592 Japanese invasion and the battle for the Jinju Fortress.
Lanterns were used to communicate with those outside the Fortress during the battle.
A total of 57,000 lanterns adorned the areas around the Fortress and the Nam River for the festival.
There was also a special invitational exhibit of foreign lanterns to commemorate the 50 years of diplomatic ties between South Korea and Canada.
