Bombing dragon is the core activity of the Lunar New Year Lantern Festival developed by the Hakka people in Miaoli County, Taiwan. Firecrackers set off when welcoming the dragon. It means to welcome the god dragon and to scare away evil spirits. Also, more firecrackers make the business more prosperous. So most businesses will buy a lot of firecrackers to celebrate dragon dance in front of their shops. This event usually starts at night. At the scene of the explosion of dragons, dragons danced, thousands of people drilled. It presents a festival atmosphere like a superstar concert.
