On November 2(Sat), we will have an event called 'Experience Picking Apples' in Pyeonggwang-dong which initiated the famous apple plantation of Daegu 114 years ago.
Under the slogan of 'Be Fascinated with the Taste and Scent of Apples while Walking Mt. Palgong Olle Road', participants are supposed to take a walk the route-4 among the Olle Roads in Mt. Palgong at this peak of fall. It is expected to have a chance to feel the deepened autumn flavour enjoying the fall foliage.
The picking apple experience is the highlight of this event. The largest participants ever will join the event bringing back the self-picked apples home(3.5 kg/person). In addition, the participants will receive an interesting explanation on the history of the apples of the town and the Olle Road of Mt. Palgong by the culture-expositors accompanied.
Any citizens of Daegu can join this event and the application will be accepted in the order of arrival by November 1.
