Pingxi Sky Lantern Festival

When settlement was underway in Pingxi during the early to mid-19th century, life was generally prosperous and peaceful. But such harmony was sometimes disrupted by bandits. After autumn harvest ended, villagers packed their belongings and retreated to the mountains to hide. When Lantern Festival came, somebody would be sent back to the village to see if the bandits had gone. The scout then released a sky lantern so the villagers would know it was safe to return.
