"Tai O Dragon Boat Water Parade" Field Trip


With more than 100 years of history, the Tai O dragon boat water parade is held every year during the Dragon Boat Festival by three fishermen's associations, namely Pa Teng Hong, Sin Yu Hong and Hop Sum Tong. The deity statues are put on sacred sampans towed by the dragon boats to parade through Tai O's waters to invoke blessings for well-being and peace.


Participants who joined the activity can observe the dragon boat parade in stilt houses with the local residents on the day of Dragon Boat Festival and enjoy this local tradition which was inscribed onto the national list of intangible cultural heritage. (Docent service will not be provided.)
