This festival, one of Taiwan’s most colorful events, is held every year on the Luye Plateau in Taitung County. Weather-permitting, exciting balloon flying shows are staged each day during the carnival in the early-morning hours and at dusk. Visitors can, via a hot-air balloon summer camp, hot-air balloon style displays, hot-air balloon taster flights (in a balloon fixed to the ground by rope), light-sculpture concerts, and other interesting activities, feel the thrill of hot-air ballooning and fully appreciate the beauty of eastern Taiwan.
