This year I thought we could not just watch the parade but also "roll up our sleeves" and make lanterns, how about that?

"On the streets full of waves of a variety of five-color lanterns, the paraders greeted the audience with bright smiles.
That bright smile creates Yeondeunghoe full of happiness.
