2018 Taiwan International Balloon Festival

Taitung County Magistrate Justin Huang (黃健庭) took a hot air balloon ride in Chishang Township (池上鄉) during a press event on June 1 as he kicked off the 2018 Taiwan International Balloon Festival taking place between June 30 and August 13.

Now in its eighth year, the annual hot air balloon fest features a record high 39 “participating balloons” and boasts the longest period – more than 40 days — compared to past events, Huang was quoted by the Central News Agency as saying.
