We just came back from the beach and heard that the government announced on the news last night that all Daeboreum Festivals nationwide be cancelled due to the Avian Flu and Foot and Mouth Disease. The villagers are not allowed to go ahead with the festival. I am looking for the relevant articles and will post it on the event later. I have found one article so far although it doesn't mention the festival as such.
We will get some of the logs etc and make our own fire. If you want to BBQ we have lamb and steak with salad packages. Okpo is one of the places in Korea with the most foreign restaurants and bars. It's only about 10 minutes from the beach by taxi if you prefer it a bit more upbeat. We will still go ahead with all the activities. Will be fun and we hope to still see you here on Wahyeon Beach.
If you want to cancel because of the cancelled festival, we will understand completely. Sure you will still have a great weekend if you decide to still come. All the other activities etc will still go ahead as planned. Just the cultural festival will not happen with the fire, dancing etc
I took these photos at the beach before posting the news. Everything was coming along well for the festival, but they stopped all work on the festival now.
We are sure you will still have an amazing time. We will be here to help if you need to get to activities etc.
