The 2008 Andong Mask Festival-but you could probably tell already.
Got this one walking through a horde of people dressed in incredibly ornate costumes. Was rather fun actually.
Spotted this classy lady walking with her hand bag dressed in tradional Hanbok.
The face of the statue is representative of one of the tradional masks worn in a dance peasants preformed during the Joseon Dynasty. It was typically a satire poking fun at the Korean elite. Now the elite put on a festival to parade around their politicians and turn a buck off the peasant culture.

This guy was relaxing to the fullest. White gloves and all.
They had several types of puppets. Sarah got one that looks more like a monk.
Our friend Dale takes a second to pose for this one. I'm not going to cut on him while I'm still living in Korea. He's a bit of a loose cannon. He once nearly flipped his tank while on maneuvers in the Outback.
These guys share their head dresses with the local highschool cheerleading squads during the week. Communism still has a hold on some parts of Korean society.
