    <Summer Festival ‘Seoullo go’ (August 22-26), a vacation in the city with swimming, film screening, performances and play experiences>

    Seoul City will hold the ‘2018 Seoullo Summer Festival – Seoullo go’ from August 22nd (Wed.) to the 26th (Sun.) at the Seoullo 7017 Malli-dong Square and present various programs to fight the heat.

    One program that stands out is the children’s pool area. With positive responses and participation from local residents, the pool has been in operation with great success since its opening on the 13th (August 13-26, 15:00-20:00).

    The pool area is made up of 20 circular swimming pools of 1m to 2m in diameter. Under the theme of a water library, 100 waterproof books, water guns and toys are available for children to enjoy. The pools are only available for children under the age of 10. In addition, there is a picnic shelter with parasols, mats, beach chairs, tables and books and board games for children.

    After swimming, visitors can enjoy movies (refreshing film festival), summer night performances, story-telling, play experiences (DIY experience, Seoullo go) and other programs offered in the evening.
