The 2024 Central Taiwan Lantern Festival will be unveiled in grand style at Taichung Central Park with the Chinese zodiac dragon sign as the main theme. Its “Bravo”name, a play on the Taiwanese phrase “everything goes well”, highlights the charisma of a wonderful life in Taichung City and best wishes to everyone for a peaceful, joyful Year of the Dragon filled with good fortune and prosperity.
This year’s Lantern Festival, with its theme of “Blessed Living and Sustainable Travels”, offers various spacious settings with marvelous, natural magical scenes. Taichung Central Park’s central water retention basin resembles a swirling dragon, thereby turning the park into a mystical dragon paradise where every lantern area is a dragon’s lair, and every visitor becomes an adventurer, using the map to explore each lantern area to experience Taichung’s resplendent natural and cultural charms as they admire and interact with this event at a close distance.

Main Lantern –Taichung Bravo

The Central Taiwan Lantern Festival’s main “Taichung Bravo”lantern transforms Central Park’s water retention basin into a theater stage, with a mystical dragon swirling over the basin’s water-land boundary. The main dragon lantern, 76 meters long and 27 meters wide, includes a performance with  dancers rotating, throwing and catching illuminated cubes to portray a dragon having fun with dragon balls and joins a mobile carrier over the water of about 150 meters to present a splendid main lantern show.
