Taipei, Feb. 18 (CNA) The lantern display will continue until April 19 in Yunlin County’s Beigang Township, despite the close of the 2017 Taiwan Lantern Festival on Sunday, an official said Saturday.

The Yunlin County government decided in a meeting held that day that all the lanterns currently being exhibited in Beigang will be preserved, making the extension possible, said Chang Sheng-chih (張勝智), chief of the township.

Extending the lantern display will allow visitors to take part in annual events celebrating the birthday of the sea goddess Matsu at Beigang’s well-known Chaotian Temple, he said.    [FULL  STORY]
