邁入十週年的臺灣國際熱氣球嘉年華將於暑假展開,過去9年有許多來自世界各國的造型熱氣球在鹿野高臺亮相,其中不乏卡通明星及吉祥物,而究竟哪一顆熱氣球最受遊客青睞?熱氣球官方臉書粉絲專頁從1月15日到2月10日推出「熱氣球友們回娘家囉!十週年特別企劃」,調查最受粉絲們歡迎的造型熱氣球,票選結果今(19)日正式出爐,來自荷蘭的梵谷球去年首次在鹿野高台登場就讓人留下深刻印象,28公尺高的球體緩緩掠過縱谷上空,令人非常震撼,風光拿下第一名!

The tenth anniversary of the Taiwan International Hot Air Balloon Festival will take place during this year’s summer vacation. During the past nine years, various hot air balloons from various countries around the world have appeared on the highlands at Luye. Which one of these balloons has been the most popular among tourists? The Taiwan Hot Air Balloon Festival official Facebook fan page ran a campaign from January 15 until February 10 of this year to investigate the most popular hot air balloon models. The results were released on February 19, and the winner was the Van Gogh balloon hailing from the Netherlands. The 28-meter high balloon made its debut last year as it slowly passed over the scenery in the East Rift Valley.

臺東縣政府交通及觀光發展處表示,奪冠的梵谷球是為了紀念荷蘭知名畫家文森・梵谷,其造型是依據1887年「戴灰氈帽的自畫像」畫作高解析度3D重製而成。另外,比利時的黑武士球及臺灣的福利熊球也非常有人氣,分別獲得第二、三名,緊追在後的有巴西的海綿寶寶球、英國的小小兵球及臺灣的喔熊球,也都相當受歡迎,常常是民眾搶著合照的對象。「熱氣球回娘家企劃」11日從八百多則留言中抽出10位幸運兒,可得到熱氣球獨家愛心抱枕,得獎名單及活動詳情請上「臺灣熱氣球嘉年華」臉書粉絲專頁查詢。

The Department of Transportation and Tourism Development of Taitung County Government stated that the winning Van Gogh balloon was created in the honor of the well-known Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. Its shape was based on a high-resolution painting from 1887 of a self-portrait, in which he was wearing a gray felt hat. Belgium’s black Samurai balloon and Taiwan’s One Two Bear balloon were also very popular, winning second and third places respectively. These balloons were followed closely by Brazil’s SpongeBob balloon, The UK’s Minions balloon, and Taiwan’s OhBear ball, and often attracting many people who rush to take pictures. Ten lucky people were selected in a draw from more than 800 messages on the fan page. They will each get an exclusive hot air balloon pillow.

縣府交觀處指出,2016年以前每年造型熱氣球數量都在20顆以下,自2017年起便突破30顆,去年數量更高達40顆,而2020年到底有哪些熱氣球會出現,目前還是保密狀態,適逢十週年,除了持續邀請新的造型球登場外,也會盡力邀請過去受歡迎的造型球來臺東大團圓,請廣大熱氣球友持續關注相關訊息。
