President Tsai Ing-wen is encouraging people to join her at Taiwan's Lantern Festival in Yunlin County this Saturday.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Tsai said that since her Democratic Progressive Party first came to power in 2001, Taiwan's Lantern Festival has been hosted in many counties and cities outside of Taipei. This year, it will be hosted in Yunlin County.
"In addition to displaying local tradition, this year's lantern festival will also have a show of diverse cultures and innovation. On February 11, the day of the Lantern Festival, I will be there with Yunlin County Magistrate Lee Chin-yung to light the lanterns," Tsai said. "I'd like to invite everyone to come to Yunlin and attend a lantern festival marked by tradition, innovative diversity and true Taiwanese flavor."
Tsai said that Yunlin County is Taiwan's most important agricultural county that will also be a leader in green energy. This year's lantern festival has many green features such as an ecological park.
Meanwhile, County Magistrate Lee Chin-yung said this will be the largest Lantern Festival ever, with over 10,000 volunteers participating.
