The high-flying festival is offering local residents and visitors the chance to take off from famous Pingtan attractions including Shipaiyang, Haitan Ancient City, Taiwan Aoqian Town and Tannan Bay, and see the island city from a new perspective.

A splendid launch ceremony for the fiesta was held on the city's Longfengtou Beach on April 29, where a series of performances themed on local marine culture created a fantastic blue sea world for the audience.
