Pingtung organizes massive New Year's music fest

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Co-organized by the Pingtung County Government Social Affairs Department and the Pingtung County Sisal Park Urban and Rural Educational Development Association, the “2014 Pingtung Forever Love Countdown Music Festival” will be held at the West Gate Square in Heng Chun Old Town.

The New Year's Eve event is promoted as being the first large-scale music festival organized at the southernmost end of Taiwan. Local bands will begin playing at 5 p.m.

Worried that the display of fireworks could potentially pollute the clean air and natural beauty of Hengchun, the event is also set to be the “greenest” countdown in Taiwan. No fireworks will be used as organizers say that the beauty of the natural tropical ambience will provide more than enough marvel throughout the night to anyone in attendance.

Pingtung County Magistrate Tsao Chi-hung (曹啟鴻) said that like the previous years, the event features facilities for the ease of the handicapped.

A free shuttle bus service has also been included to help bring handicapped attendees directly to a special viewing zone, installed in close proximity to the stage. Furthermore, the organizers have also promoted wheelchair rental services as well as free sign language translation upon reservation.
