2010 Taiwan Lantern Festival in Chia-yi (28th Feb.-7th March)!!


About 2010 Taiwan Lantern Festival

Lighting Up the Night Sky
Let's Celebrate the Taiwan Lantern Festival

The 15th day of the first lunar month each year, known as "Yuan Xiao", is one of the three major traditional festivals in Taiwan. It is also the first festival celebration after the start of the Lunar New Year. Special events include the Taiwan Lantern Festival, Pingxi Heavenly Lanterns, Taitung Bombing of the God Handan, the Beehive Rockets of Yanshui, the Taipei Lantern Festival, and traditional celebratory temple rituals. The Discovery Channel's "Fantastic Festivals of the World" program also strongly recommended the Taiwan Lantern Festival as one of the world's best festival events. Since 1990, the Taiwan Tourism Bureau has organized the Taiwan Lantern Festival, and this year, the festival enters its 21st year. The centerpiece of the event is a giant theme lantern modeled on the Chinese zodiacal animal of the year, accompanied by subsidiary lanterns and special lantern areas such as the Hope & Wishes lantern section, the Fun-Filled lantern section and many others, all of which successfully display the art of lantern-making. During the official opening ceremony, performing groups from Taiwan and overseas enliven the festivities, making this an event you cannot miss
