Visitors glow red in a tunnel of festival lanterns at the Jinju Namgang Yudeung Festival, or the Jinju Lantern Festival, in Jinju, South Korea on October 1, 2012. The festival, which runs Oct. 1 to 14, originated during the Japanese invasion of 1592 when Koreans lit lanterns to illuminate the Namgang River surrounding Jinjuseong Fortress to prevent Japanese troops from crossing. A tradition during the festival are the floating lanterns carrying peoples wishes. UPI/Thomas Michael Corcoran
