Lighting up the Taiwan Lantern Festival  Warm Response to Call for Volunteers

Volunteer service is the key to the success of any large-scale events. The 2020 Taiwan Lantern Festival, an event yearned for by all the people in Taiwan, will be lighted up by the selfless support of thousands of volunteers, who will also demonstrate the vigorousness of Taichung City. The volunteers will serve in seven groups, i.e. "visitor service", "performance", "guide and docent", "environment service ", "health care", “general affairs”, and "security." The recruitment of volunteers started in August 2019, and more than 5,000 volunteers signed up for service in two months from Taichung City and other places. They will be serving in the different groups of their choice to facilitate the running of the lantern festival.

Enthusiastic Participation in the Lantern Festival Volunteer Training Workshops

Taichung City Government has arranged a series of general training workshops for Lantern Festival volunteers, introducing the themes and operation of the 2020 Taiwan Lantern Festival. Volunteers attending the training workshops range from young adolescents to senior citizens over 80 years of age. Some are of several generations from the same family. The enthusiasm and warm service of the volunteers will certainly make them the best endorsers for Taichung City.
