Korean Harvest Festival @ Flushing Meadows Park

2008's Chusok, aka, Korean Harvest Festival, aka Korean Thanksgiving, taking place today and tomorrow in Flushing Meadows Corona Park is going to be big. Some estimate that as many as 30,000 people will show.
The food is going to be off the meter. This is a pic from 2007's festival (from over at Eating in Translation).

The official park website only reflects today's goings on, but according to John over at his About Queens blog, it's going on both today and tomorrow (09.20-21.08). Today's the rehearsal for the performers, while tomorrow's the real deal. Supposed to be some famous Korean performers. According to, "Park Jin Young and the Wonder Girls are going to be the main highlights with appearances also by G-Soul, J Lim and Min." I'm not a huge fan of K-Pop (hope I don't offend anyone), but I have heard the Wonder Girls are getting big. There's a blog dediacted to them, here.
