Yup, Pingxi is known for the sky lantern festival in the winter where thousands of lanterns covered in wishes light up the night sky. Of course, setting off these lanterns are not limited by time of the day or time of the year. Just during our August day trip we saw several people light lanterns into the sunny sky.
