Citizens Day Event
The Citizens Day Event is held on every April 1st to commemorate Gimpo’s promotion from gun to city, which took place on April 1st, 1998, and is divided into a commemorative ceremony and a citizens’ athletics competition for harmony and local patriotism of the citizens.
The citizens’ athletics competition is held every two years (odd-number years) and residents in every corner from each eup, myeon and dong come together to not only measure their physical capabilities against one another in various events including life gymnastics, ball-rolling and tug-of-war, but also share the food they have diligently prepared to have a festival of abundance.
