[Jeju Olle Trail Volunteering] Jeju OIle’s Young Supporters (Belegi Ganse) promoting the 2013 Jeju Olle Walking Festival at the 52nd Tamna Culture Festival

The Jeju Olle Young Supporters group were out to help out with the 52nd Tamna Culture Festival in the Tapdong area of Jeju City. It is a five day festival showcasing the old ways of Jeju living. It is finishing up as I write this blog post.

I was able to help out on the Thursday morning because it was a national holiday in Korea. We were there to promote Jeju Olle Trail and our own upcoming festival later this month. Volunteers began to arrive at the booth for 10 a.m. and set up in as people began to trickle in.

I’ll explain more about the Young Supporters (or Belegi Ganse as they are known in Korean) another time. We spent a lot of the day giving out leaflets and chatting to people. I particularly enjoyed getting a chance to speak with foreign attendees.

Anyway here are a few photographs from my volunteer experience. Props to the rest of the crew who manned the booth on Saturday and Sunday. As I spent quite a portion of Sunday translating next week’s Facebook page posts into English I wasn’t able to go down again.

I also link a media video about the festival to give readers a feel for the place and a local news outlet story from the opening night. It is in Korean, but there are photographs.
