The 2019 Penghu International Fireworks Festival starts today. The Penghu County Government has announced huge fireworks displays every Monday and Thursday from today until late June, along with an extra show scheduled for Mother’s Day on May 12. There will also be a drone display featuring 200 drones for each show.

For flower lovers, the ongoing rose exhibition at Taipei’s Shilin Official Residence is not to be missed, as over 2,000 plants of 125 rose varieties are blooming in the garden. The colorful event will run through Sunday next week. Meanwhile, the Hakka Tung Blossom Festival is to begin in Hsinchu and Miaoli counties this month: visitors are welcome to admire the Tung blossoms while participating in the Hakka cultural activities.

Finally, the 54-day Bitan Water Show in New Taipei City’s Xindian District runs until April 30. Using high-pressure water jets, the spectacular water dance every evening in Bitan, literally “green lake,” will shoot up to 30m high.
