    New Taipei City hopes to for big tourism boost from Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival (2014/01/08)

    Three separate events will take place in Pingxi, New Taipei City this year to celebrate Lantern Festival. The popular festival is expected to attract up to a million visits this year.

    An endless number of sky lanterns slowly lift off into the air as part of New Taipei City’s Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival. Last year, the world's largest travel guide publisher, Fodor's, selected the event as one of the 15 international festivals to see before one dies, bringing more overseas attention.

    I think we’ve always used sky lanterns as an activity that can represent Taiwan. Our most important goal this year is to make the event more international.

    This year’s Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival includes three distinct activities. The first takes place on Feb. 3 and will feature a sky lantern in the shape of a traditional gold ingot or “yuanbao” along with a likeness of the God of Wealth.

    On Feb. 8, a 12-foot sky lantern will be released bearing special wishes submitted via the internet.

    New Taipei Deputy Mayor
    Last year, three different events associated with Lantern Festival attracted nearly 800,000 visits. I believe we can surpass 1 million this year. Previously these events brought in about NT$560 million in business opportunities, and this year we should be able to break NT$1 billion.

    The third event will be Feb. 14, the actual date of Lantern Festival. Organizers plan to release upwards of 1,700 sky lanterns into the air.

    天燈拼觀光

    平溪天燈節,總是吸引大批遊客到訪,新北市政府今年分成三場,除了傳統天燈,還有元寶造型天燈,和大型的許願拼貼天燈,市府預估,參觀人次很可能破百萬。

    數不清的天燈,冉冉升空,新北市的平溪天燈節,去年被全球最大旅遊出版公司Fodor’s選為15個此生必遊的經典節慶之一,也因此打開了國際知名度。

    [[新北市觀光旅遊局長 陳國君]]
    我想台灣一直把天燈當一個足以代表台灣的活動,所以今年面對國際是我們一個重要目標。

    今年的平溪天燈節,分成三場,第一場是2月3號,新北市政府,製作了元寶天燈,上頭還有財神造型。

    2月8號,會有12呎的大型天燈,拼貼著來自網路上傳的心願與祝福紙卡。

    [[新北市副市長 李四川]]
    往年大概三場,就有80萬人次的參與,我想今年應該會更多,也許會破百萬,我們(預估)大概帶來5億6千萬商機,今年應該可以破10億。

    第三場則是在2月14日,元宵節當天,預計當天晚上會施放一千七百多盞天燈。
