Taipei, Sept. 23 (CNA) Lieyu Township in Kinmen County will hold a two-day fair to celebrate the taro harvest during Taiwan's National Day holiday on Oct. 10 and 11, according to the township office.

October is peak taro harvest time in Lieyu, and township chief Hung Jo-shan (洪若珊) said Tuesday that the locally gown taro is known for its smooth texture that melts in the mouth.

Hung, who herself dug up the root vegetable during a press event to promote the two-day fair, said the 1,000 slots in one of the fair's main events -- a mass taro harvest -- were snatched up shortly after the organizers began accepting applications.

Various events are planned from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on National Day on Oct. 10, such as a farmers' market, a competition to pick the best taro grown by local growers, and an evening pop concert, and they will take place at the town's Donglin Stadium, she said.

On Oct. 11, the fair will continue with a family event in which parents and their children will learn how to make taro balls, usually eaten in desserts, the township chief said.

To attract visitors for a longer stay in Lieyu, the township office will prepare a mystery gift each night for visitors during stays in the town between Oct. 1 and Nov. 30, she said.

Lieyu, like all of Kinmen County, is located much closer to China's southeastern coast than to the main island of Taiwan, lying less than 5 kilometers from the city of Xiamen. (Sponsored Content)
