'14 Wanggong Fireworks event lights up Changhua

TAIPEI--The central county of Changhua launched its annual Wanggong Fireworks Festival Saturday with a ceremony at a temple near the fishing port.

This is the 10th year for the event that combines a fireworks display, local produce and delicacies and a music festival -- which county Magistrate Cho Po-yuan said rivals the better known Kenting music festival in Pingtung and Gongliao music festival in New Taipei.

Cho attended a blessing ceremony at Fuhai Temple to kick off the two-day event and wish it a success.

He praised Wanggong, a small fishing port in Changhua's Fangyuan Township, for its “distinctive features” such as beautiful sunsets and oyster aquaculture.

As a further incentive for visitors to brave the hot weather, the county government has prepared 500 soft-serve ice cream cones and 500 commemorative hats to hand out for free.
