According to the Department of Information and Tourism (TPEDOIT), the summer festival is now entering the final two weeks. The fireworks on August 9 and the next show on August 16 will both consist of a 360-second-long display. The closing firework finale slated for August 20 will comprise a 480-second-long event featuring high altitude fireworks.
In addition, the organizers will invite celebrities including golden melody award winners and pop stars to entertain the audience with exciting performances. The agency reminds those planning on attending the show that the starting time of summer festival fireworks in August will be delayed to 8:35 PM, in compliance with guidelines from the Civil Aeronautics Administration.
Furthermore, there will be a promotion campaign giving away limited-edition Bravo beer mugs through August 20. To enter, participants will have to submit a photo taken at the snapshot area – the graffiti wall outside Floodgate 5, wharf area, Dadaocheng Wharf Cargo Market, or Croquet Ground public art display – and upload it to one’s social media account with hashtag “#大稻埕夏日節“. He or she will also have to add Taipei City Government’s LINE account as friend. Finally, he or she should acquire uniform invoices or proofs of purchase of spending NT$1,000 or more at either partner stores, Dadaocheng Wharf Cargo Market, or Blue Highway ferry operators. Bring these items to the information counter at Floodgate 5 to exchange for the Limited-Edition Bravo Beer Mug. Supplies are limited, so act fast!
In addition, the second wave of “My Best Angle for Watching Fireworks” photo submission and raffle event will take place through August 11. The organizers invite visitors to submit fireworks photos and share the locations for taking these amazing shots, such as Sanchong Wharf and Elephant Mountain Hiking Trail. More details are available on Taipei Travel Net.
