Due to COVID-19, major events of the flower festival such as the opening ceremony, flea market, and holiday and weekend performances have all been cancelled. Instead, Bravo will take viewers on a virtual trip to tour the blooming cherry blossom on the opening day in the form of livestreaming. There will also be a raffle event for the public as well.
Taipei’s flower festival is internationally renowned, not mentioning Yangmingshan National Park has been certified as the world’s first Urban Quiet Park by Quiet Parks International. Known as “the backyard of Taipei”, the Park boasts a large array of cherry blossoms that are about to bloom all the way to mid-spring. Starting with Taiwan cherry and Yaezakura during the CNY holiday, visitors will be able to see the blooming Showa cherry during the 228 long weekend and Yoshino cherry in March.
The Parks and Street Lights Office (PSLO) will also provide information on the blooming process of cherry blossom and number of visitors via its Facebook Fanpage. The number of visitor will be announced twice a day on the website and be presented in a red, yellow and green light. If the park is extremely crowded, a reminder will appear on the website, reminding viewers not to visit the Park during this period.
Furthermore, the agency has also implemented a number of pandemic prevention measures at the venue, such as increasing the number of patrolling staffs to remind visitors to wear a face mask; and setting up 12 notice boards and 2 megaphones that repeat playback to remind visitors to follow social distancing and face mask guidelines.
The organizers remind the public that, even when outdoors, visitors should keep social distancing of at least 1 meter and wear their face mask. If it is crowded, visitors are also advised to visit the Park when it is less crowded.
