Sky Lanterns Festival in Pingxi 2007 平溪天燈

a test fly before the formal program starts...

"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.


The sky lanterns begin to be fired and released from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm by 12 waves with pop singers and raising charity fund programs alternately.
