However, in compliance with pandemic prevention guidelines, only 3,000 people will be admitted through a raffle. Preregistration will open to the public between 9 AM on October 7 and midnight on October 10. The results will be determined by computer drawing on October 12. A total of 1,500 winners (each winner can bring 1 other individual, and both will need to be admitted at the same time) will receive their electronic admission ticket on TaipeiPASS after noon time on October 12. The admission ticket should be shown at the gates when entering on October 16, and each ticket holder will receive one picnic mat as a souvenir.
There will be no vendor stalls at the event this year. Eating and drinking (other than basic water intake) is prohibited at the venue. Participants are required to undergo contact-tracing registration, wear facemask, have their temperature taken, and disinfect hands upon entry. Staff will patrol the parameters to ensure that guidelines on social distancing and facemask are followed.
