Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival will be held 02 Mar 2018 in Taipei, Taiwan.
Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival is one of the more subtle and beguiling annual celebratory days in the Chinese calendar. In a blaze of luminous glory, 100,000 to 200,000 hot air balloons emblazon a full moonlit sky. Originally the lanterns were released to let refugees hiding in the hills know that their town was safe and they could return home again. As each year passes on the lunar calendar, people gather by the tens of thousands in the Pingxi District of New Tapei City to write their dreams and desires on lanterns and then release them into the sky. Over 100,000 lanterns ranging in size, shape and color are lit, and visitors are more than welcome to contribute their own lantern to the glowing swarm. Other entertainment surrounding the festival includes a lantern riddle competition, a carnival and area folk music. Although the holiday is celebrated all across Asia, nowhere in the world is it more recognized than Pingxi, a remote mountain town an hour-long drive from Taipei. Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival is an event and I like events...
