After Danny’s work, we agreed to meet up at his workplace because he wanted to show me something. Unknowningly, he drove us to Lotte World to watch the night parade. It’s not that I don’t like surprises, don’t get me wrong I really do. Unfortunately, I didn’t bring my camera and visiting Lotte World is a luxury. Although, they offer discounts after 5 in the afternoon and 7 in the evening. So, I had to endure once again my phone camera’s photo resolution.

The night parade starts at 8:30pm and while waiting for it, we strolled around the indoor amusement park.

By 8pm, we decided to wait at the center stage to get the front row. But, when we got there, people were already waiting and many were seated on the floor and we got some available space on the floor behind two baby strollers.

They wore colorful costumes with plenty of props attached and rode on creative automobiles. Well, I can’t help but noticed that most of the performers were Caucasians. At the end part of the show, there was a short and mini fireworks display. Too bad, my camera didn’t get it. The parade lasted for about 20 minutes. I think Lotte characters are too childish nevertheless, everyone still enjoyed the program including us.
