Happy Sailing by Pang-soong (Apex) Lin
I remember that when I was a kid, I could always hear the melody of Happy Sailing sung by Fen-Lan Chen whenever I traveled to Kaohsiung.
Based on Kaohsiung's local culture characteristics, well-known domestic designers and artists are invited to jointly show different styles of the city with their different expressions and aspects.In order to demonstrate the city's local culture and the view during the daytime, many lanterns are made to be interactive with visitors and display landscape aesthetics.
With the metaphor behind the Rat Light 2020, everyone has to work hard together to lit up the lantern by shaking the devices to light up and change colors of the rat Lantern , to contribute one’s effort to become part of the dazzling lantern festival.
Many colleges and universities are invited to participate in the creation of Spring Welcoming the Golden Rat -- Love Kaohsiung. The local culture and history of Kaohsiung are incorporated into the concept of the overall creation. The traces of the old surroundings and people's daily lives are used to design 10 unique artistic lanterns which have cultural and creative elements, creating a lantern festival look that is dazzling day and night.

In addition to the lighting environment of the road sections without planned lights, special highlights will be added to create the necessary routes for taking photos, punching and stamping. In a immersive way, the scene of the love river is combined with the romantic love Paris Tower, and the adjacent seating space is far away. The night view of the love river becomes the most beautiful background.
Mysterious lighting is about to debut ~ stay tuned
The Education Bureau organizes the 2020 Kaohsiung Lantern Festival -- National Creative Lantern Competition to cultivate the students’ capacity for teamwork and aesthetics. The goals are to create a learning atmosphere for campus sharing, co-learning between the elderly and youth, and multi-generational societies. The participants incorporate Kaohsiung's urban and rural characteristics and the value of “Citizen Participation and Happiness in Kaohsiung” into the design concepts. This year, the main theme includes the Year of the Rat in Chinese zodiac and folk stories, religious styles, history and culture, ethnic integration and other creative ideas which are in sync with the vibrant New Year atmosphere. The banks of Love River will demonstrate the artistic beauty of lanterns and let everyone enjoy the festival and have a good Lunar New Year holiday.
Kaohsiung is a city of "mountains, seas, river ports, humanities, and monuments". Due to the regulation of the marine climate, the year-round sunshine and pleasant climate have a unique "ocean capital" characteristic. In recent years, the tourism industry has been vigorously promoted and has become one of the most beautiful cities in Taiwan. The coastal light environment mainly covers the two sides of the Aihe Light District and the 228 Heping Park Light District. Using the topography
trees, and buildings of the Aihe River to coordinate the theme to create a sense of space and change, it can be laid in large quantities by LED or other environmental protection and energy-saving lighting. The Lantern Festival has a cheerful atmosphere.
