Taipei, April 6 (CNA) A total of 88 couples are expected to recite their wedding vows at this year’s Hakka Tung Blossom and Wedding Festival in Miaoli County in May, the county’s Culture and Tourism Bureau announced during a press conference on Thursday.

The wedding event will be part of Miaoli’s annual festival that celebrates white tung blossoms — often described as “April snow” or “May snow” depending on when they are in full bloom, by locals – and part of the cultural heritage of Taiwan’s Hakka community.

The festival is held annually amid much fanfare, with a series of fun activities to promote tourism in Miaoli County. According to the bureau, this will be the twelfth year the wedding ceremony has been held.    [FULL  STORY]
