To promote Taiwan's tourism in the global community, so as to attract more foreign visitors to the country and increase tourism revenues, Tourism Bureau, MOTC has held the Taiwan Lantern Festival in recent years with the idea of "spreading the roots of folk culture while holding traditional fests at an international level."

Lantern parades are traditionally held on the Lantern Day. By combining traditional culture with top-notch technology, Taiwan Lantern Festival presents itself as a shining fest compatible with its international counterparts. The main lantern area is so beautiful that it is merely impossible to appreciate everything at once. Local and overseas folk troupes dedicate their remarkable performances to the festival's goers. Many other performance groups also bring their impressive shows to the audience. The festival has therefore been hailed by local participants and foreign guests alike.

In 2007, a Discovery Channel producer and his team came to Taiwan to join the festival, and concluded that this international event is worth some recognition. In fact, Taiwan Lantern Festival has since been chosen by the Discovery Channel to be one of the best festivals in the world. Discovery has made an hour-long documentary that has been shown globally to introduce the dazzling, charming Taiwan Lantern Festival.

Taking the theme of "Riding Dreams and Chasing Light along Winds of the Future," the 32nd Taiwan Lantern Festival will integrate design and craft art as well as tradition and innovation, and will speak to the world through art with "lantern festival 2.1." It aims to instill new creativity into Taiwan's traditional festivals, create a place where people can enjoy life together, and increase the country's global presence.

This year, the festival brings together images of "traditional lanterns," "the innocence of children," and a "flight on lanterns" to suggest enjoyable family times on the lantern day. The children's joyful ride on the flying lanterns while gazing into the far distance symbolizes a hopeful look at the limitless future with a pure and innocent heart.
