The food vendors were abundantly stocked with the usual fair of corn dogs and french fries, but also a few food items I wasn't used to seeing. Even growing up in the Philippines where we serve and eat quite a bit of strange and unusual food, I have never eaten or nor will I try silk worms.

The festival not only had Korean singers and dancers, but also had other cultures perform their native dance and song. We caught an Australian Aboriganie group on one of the four entertainment stages.
There was a mascot, but I can't for the life of me recognize what it is suppose to be. Does anyone recognize what type of animal or force of nature the mascot is suppose to be? It looks like some type of water creature which would make sense since it is a lake that is being represented.

This gentleman in traditional clothes is sitting in front of what looks like a formal tea setting. There were old and modern Korean traditions that were represented in the festival.
