Kaohsiung Lantern Festival 2008

A shot of the Love River. Lanterns are displayed along the banks of the river.

Colorful lanterns on display. These lanterns were made by primary school students!

2008 is Lunar Year 4705-4706 and "The Year of the Rat"... or mouse. That explains why we have a lantern of Mickey Mouse running in the 2009 World Games which will be hosted by Kaohsiung.

Some more lanterns in keeping with theme of "The Year of the Rat."

Hearts appropriately wrapped around a tree along the Love River.

Nightly fireworks are set off over Kaohsiung Harbor during the Lantern Festival.
