The theme with love and happiness

As the Chinese pronunciation of the number 2020 is similar to “love you, love you” in Taiwanese,  the 2020 Xinshe Sea of Flowers and Taichung International Flower Carpet Festival are themed with “2020 Love You, Love You” to bring an abundance of love and happiness to visitors.
