BUSAN, South Korea - Halloween fever hits the peninsula this weekend, and there's plenty of things going on if you're in the spirit. Halloween coincides with the big fireworks festival this Saturday, so expect big crowds around Gwangalli, and tons of people from Kyungsung University to Haeundae walking the streets. Public transportation will also be packed, so plan accordingly to get to your destination on time, as taxis may be sparse from 6 p.m. to midnight. The Gwangalli Beach Road will also be closed to traffic from 5 p.m., so traffic in the area will be very congested.
