Toronto, May 14 (CNA) Orchids from Taiwan have become a big draw at the 2016 Canadian
Tulip Festival, being held May 12-23 in Ottawa.
This marks Taiwan’s first comeback to the festival after a 10-year hiatus.
The Taiwan pavilion is decorated with 120 pots of moth orchids in 12 different colors, 24 pots of tulips and a canoe built by the indigenous Tao tribe of Taiwan’s Orchid Island.
Attracted by the beautiful decoration, many visitors stopped in front of the pavilion to take photos.
Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson gave high praise to Taiwan’s high-quality orchids during his visit to the pavilion, and parliamentarian Ahmed Hussen and his wife also spent quite some time at the pavilion. [FULL STORY]
