Activity Time

Love and Hope, A Voyage to the Asteroids with the Little Prince
The Flower Carpet Festival this year features The Little Prince, a renowned French novella that has captured the hearts of readers worldwide. Under the theme Love and Hope, the Little Prince’s Voyage to the Asteroids, the festival highlights a giant rose and flower installations made up of local flowers in Taichung. Through the recreated scenes of the classic story, visitors are invited to embark on a voyage with the Little Prince to look for their true selves and be inspired by love and hope. The festival also sends a message to visitors that Taichung is a natural, livable and friendly city.
 A trip to the planet of love and hope, the world of Le Petit Prince
Le petit prince is a French literary work that earns acclaim from extensive readers for its profound connotations. Based on the plot of The Little Prince, the festival is titled “Love and Hope: The Little Prince’s Planet Trip”. With local flowers as color pens, the largest rose and floral installation arts on the earth’s surface are made. By linking installation arts with the story, classic scenes in the novel are created for the Little Prince to take citizens shuffling across planets to recover faith and be inspired by love and hope, and to communicate to the public the natural, livable, and friendly city image of Taichung.
Main Flower Carpet: Rose Planet

“Maybe there are five thousand roses in the world and you the same flower, but only you are my unique rose.”
The little prince brought full harvest from his trip back to the planet. At the tip, he kissed the rose symbolizing love and hope, while his flight and the fox were celebrating around.
Main Flower Carpet Show: 09:00-16:00, at every hour.
[King of Power]
2019 Taichung International Flower Carpet Festival

“My Sire, can you order the sun to set?”
The king waved his scepter at the throne, as if he had all the power. Yet, the little prince could not understand why the king upheld what he considered as power.
[Businessman of Desire]

“I own the stars, because nobody else before me ever thought of owning them.” (Chapter 13)
Day in and day put, the businessman did the computation of the numbers and starts he saw, wanting to own them rather than to contribute to the beauty of starts, being obsessed about things that may not belong to him.
[Farewell to the Flower Wall]
2019 Taichung International Flower Carpet Festival

The moment of departure eventually came. On the tall wall the little prince talked to the boa constrictor and bade farewell to earth, reluctantly, ready to return to his own planet.
[Revival of Faith]
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” People on each planet have experienced their own journeys. When you arrive at Taichung, a very special place, you should stop by and watch the beauty of sunset with the little prince.
