PingXi Sky Lantern Festival 2007 平溪天燈節

"love this red and orange color filled the sky. It's really like that people put their hope in the lanterns and let them fly!" quoted from fred's comment. thanks!


"In order to appeal for Heaven's blessings following the 921 earthquake, the Taipei County Government specially commisioned a huge heavenly lantern sixty-seven meters in height and weighing two hunderd kilograms for the 2000 Pingsi Heavenly Lantern Festival." Since then, the Sky Lanterns Festival becomes a very special day in Taipei County's Pingsi Twonship.
