PingXi Sky Lantern Festival

Sky Lantern Festival is held every year at Ping Xi (平溪) Taipei County. I'm so happy to revisit the place for the 3rd time, even though the weather was so cold and rainy that night. We're the last one to fly the sky lantern and I guess we're lucky enough to join without lining up :) Below are two ten seconds video clips. Enjoy.

The photo above is the preparation, if you're not lucky enough, the lantern might not be flying or just burned like the last photo.

February 17  is the last day celebration of Chinese New Year, and its celebrated of lighting/flying of lanterns. Eating Tang Yuan or Glutinous Rice Ball Soup.

~ Happy Lantern Festival!~


Here's my previous visit in 2009

This looks like way more fun than just watching a fireworks display that lasts 10 minutes.
