TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – Taiwan’s iconic tower, Taipei 101, marked the entrance of 2019 with the most extravagant fireworks display and light show in the country.

According to the Taipei Financial Center Corp., this year’s fireworks extravaganza included 16,000 fireworks shells, which ran for 360 seconds, 60 seconds longer than last year. Taipei 101 had invited international experts from across disciplines to implement this year’s show.

This year’s animated light show played an even larger role, was more synchronized with the pyrotechnics, and featured nine themes. In the first theme, “Night Market, Famous Food,” images of Taiwan’s famous pearl milk tea, chicken cutlets, and xiaolongbao were displayed.

The animated light show was made possible by a lighting system consisting of 140,000 LED lights called the T-Pad, which was projected on the outside of Taipei 101 from the 35th to the 90th floors.    [FULL  STORY]
