The specific date hasn't come out yet. But since the lantern festival day falls in 2/14, it's very likely to be held around the 2nd and 3rd weekends of February.

Estimated Pingxi 2014 Lantern Festival will be held before Feb. 10, 2014 because Pingxi elementary school will start from Feb. 10, 2014. Of course, you have to wait New Taipei City announcement.

So is Feb 14 2014 the date they will do the big release?

Looking at the link 2pandas posted it says 2013 not 2014!

Did anyone figure out the dates for the festival? We are trying to book accommodation but we can't find a confirmed source so we're hesitant to book hotels. If anyone can help that would be great! Thanks!
