    Actually Taipei City is probably one of the LEAST festive part of Taiwan comes Chinese New Year. Main reason being a lot of the residents are from out of town and they flock back home to other parts of Taiwan for the New Years. However like Angelskates said, 4CC is two weeks after CNY, and Taipei City gets back to the routine very quickly so there probably won't be a lot of festivities. Flora expo though is a must see!

    I meant Lantern Festival, it is usually quiet beautiful, and it is still considered part of New Year activity.
    Did'nt mean to mislead anyone.

    The site is for 2010 so the dates will be different for 2011 because Lantern Festival is celebrated according to the Lunar calendar.

    The actual day of the Lantern festival next year will be on Feb 17th (15th of the first month in Lunar calender) so the event will probably start the weekend before and go on for a few weeks. Just in time for the 4CC!

    It will be the year of the Rabbits next year so expect to see a lot of bunny lanterns

    Lantern Festival lasts about 10 days, so you should be able to see it during the week of 4CC. Taichung probably has one too. It is almost in every city.

    For other FCC countries

    No New Zealand skater has met the minimum score (except Allie who is now a speed skater) so they most likely will not be sending anyone this year.

    For Mexico these have met the min score
    Corenne Bruhns/Benjamen Westenberger
    Ana Cecilia Cantu (maybe retired?)
    Reyna Hamui
    Mary Ro Reyes

    South Africa
    Lejeanne Marais

    I think Brooklee Han is too young to compete at 4CC.

    Correct, by 6 days, according to her ISU bio (her DOB is July 6 and she needed to have turned 15 by June 30, 2010): http://www.isuresults.com/bios/isufs00012864.htm

    I don't think it's unreasonable for the ISU to wait until all countries have held their national championships before submitting their Four Continents (or Europeans) entries. Germany was allowed to submit "TBA" for their 2011 Europeans entries, for example.

    I live about one hour from Taipei so I don't go there often, but if anyone planning coming and needs info about transportation or lodging, I can try to help out, just pm me.
    One question about ticktes http://figureskating.com.tw/2011FCC/..._e_tickets.php

    OC Tickets Counter Reminer: Spectators must present the receipt of Spectator Registration Form and personal identification ID (e.g. passport, Citizenship ID Card and etc.)
    But I have not got any receipt, I just filled the form in and sent it from official site. I have not received confirmation from the organizers.

    After I submitted my order form, a screen with "Submit Completed" on top came up (included the number of tickets ordered for each event). I printed this thinking it would serve as the receipt and I'm sure that's what they are referring to.

    The final list was officially posted, its Lee, Nobbs, Webster, Kerry and the two dance teams.

    Korea is sending Ladies - Min-Jeong Kwak, Chae-Wha Kim, Yea-Ji Yun; Men - Min-Seok Kim

    I wonder if some more teams will meet the minimum ISU score at Asian Games?
