COVID-19 Update: The 2021 Taiwan Lantern Festival has been cancelled due to the Central Government’s ongoing efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

There are many activities all over Taiwan during Taiwan Lantern Festival.

During the Taiwan Lantern Festival, thousands of sky lanterns light over Pingxi District in Taiwan. In Yanshui District, the firecrackers ceremony of Wumiao Temple is also one of the important activities.

The Tainan Yanshui Fireworks Display was originally celebrated to ward off evil and disease from the town. The Taipei Pingxi Sky Lanterns were released originally to let others know that the town was safe. These lanterns are decorated with wishes and images relating to the owner. These two events are known together as “Fireworks in the South, Sky Lanterns in the North”.

Look out for the colorful temple parades and captivating performances that may happen across the city on this day!
