12월 1일부터 3일 사이에 열리는 머드토피아 축제에 교민 여러분을 초대 합니다.
보령 머드축제의 콘텐츠를 로토루아에 수출하여 열리는 이번 머드 축제에는 보령시에서 50명 이상의 직원이 파견되어 로토루아의 이번 머드축제에 우리의 노하우를 전한다고 합니다.
콘텐츠 관련 수출은 한국으로서는 처음 있는 시작으로 로토루아에 가장 인접한 해밀턴과 와이카토 교민들께 많은 참여를 부탁하고 당부 해 왔습니다.
1일의 개막을 시작으로 2일에는 보령시에서 만들어진 머드축제의 많은 행사가 이루어 지고 3일은 행사의 문을 닫습니다.
2일에 많이 참여 하시어 시작을 연 보령시 콘텐츠 수출에 힘을 보태었으면 합니다.
