Mayor Lin Jia Lung of Taichung announced that no fireworks will be displayed for the New Year Party held by Taichung City Government. The Information Bureau of Taichung City Government purchases the snowflake machine from overseas to project the snowflakes and flowers during count down. It also provides AR display and releases aroma to create a romantic atmosphere to replace the traditional fireworks. Two New Year Parties are also held this year at the track field of National Taiwan University of Sport and the second parking lot at Lihpao Land.
