The ritual comes to a close with the presentation of rice by members of the victorious party to the audience.
The Korean Cultural Properties Administration announced that Hanover Expo organizers selected Andong Chajon Nori as the Asian representative folk performance at the Expo. Hanover Expo organizers also invited Brazilian Carnival and Moroccan Fantasia performers to take the stage for the opening events, which will run from June 1 to 4.
