If you're ever in Korea during the summer, why not add joining a water fun festival in your itinerary? For the past six years, Koreans and tourists who are armed with water guns have been flocking to the streets to battle the scorching heat in South Korea. Sinchon Water Gun Festival, which is usually a weekend event, takes place in July at the stretch of Sinchon subway station through Yonsei University gate. The event, according to Timeout, usually consists of the following:

  • Water Concert

  • Umbrella Performance

  • Water Gun Fight

For 2018's Water Gun Festival in Sinchon, The Korea Herald had reported that many participants came out dressed in their favorite superhero outfits.
