Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival 2011 b&w 平溪天燈節

B&W version of "watching 60 sky lanterns released simultaneously in Jingtong Elementary School", to view color version.

"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 Pingxi Heavenly Lantern Festival." Since then, the Sky Lanterns Festival becomes a very special day in Taipei County's Pingxi Twonship.
