This festival is the biggest event for Miaoli in the last 60 years and it is also the biggest Lantern Festival for Taiwan ever. I am from Miaoli and I never thought of this event would bring so many people here. Honestly, I was shocked by the crowd. The number of visitors to Taiwan Lantern Festival is much more than the one to Flora Expo which is held in Taipei.
You can see the link on Youtube and you'll know how crowded it was at the festival.
And the photo was taken at the train station by me when I took the train back to my hometown.
But it's really a great festival, you can see my picutres. I can't upload many as I wish because the limit. So if you guys want to see more pictures, you can just google them on-line. I beleive that there are must many pictures of Taiwan Lantern Festival.
