Daegu Chrysanthemum Festival / Let’s go on a picnic to Daegu Arboretum filled with chrysanthemum scents! Lively scene of Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Exhibition!

What do you think of first when you think of Fall of Korea?
Fall picnic? Maples? Family picnic cosmos? Chrysanthemums?

You’re almost there if you thought of fall flowers!!
The festival we want to introduce today is 2014 Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Exhibition being held in Daegu Arboretum!
We saw lot of tourists visiting Daegu Arboretum from the entrance even though it was on a weekday.

Fully bloomed chrysanthemums were everywhere on the street, and trees are dyed colorfully into beautiful maples.
Chrysanthemums displayed in Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Exhibition (Chrysanthemum Festival) counts up to 10,000 kinds from the central square.

The scale is really big, isn’t it? It probably is the biggest chrysanthemum festival being held in Daegu.
There were lot of bees and butterflies near the chrysanthemums! They must have all followed the scents!
On the day we visited the festival, many children were visiting from different preschools.

They all had smile on the faces! They must have really enjoyed their picnic. Picnics were the best thing when I was younger!!

Taking commemorative pictures is a must when you see a beautiful chrysanthemum.
We also saw lot of different chrysanthemum sculptures in Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Exhibition!
Large horse symbolizing the year 2014, Daegu’s specialty apples, teddy bears, hearts, and other sculptures were formed out of chrysanthemums!
Not only these, but you can also feel the atmosphere of late autumn if you go deeper inside the arboretum.
This is it for today’s lively scenes.
If you want to really enjoy the fall of Korea, come visit Daegu Arboretum Chrysanthemum Exhibition!
