Dear iEnglish members:

We’re going to make a pilgrimage on Apr 22th for April’s outing: The Patrol of Dajia Matsu(大甲媽祖繞境), which is organized by the Dajia Zhen Lan Temple. This is a must-go of the Taiwanese traditional culture. It’s gonna be a spectacular scene of those enthusiastic worshippers and so many participants joining this great event. It happens in March of lunar year, and it’s going to last for 9 days and 8 nights. During the long walk, you’ll see the really traditional performing arts such as:
- Magnificent fireworks.
- Dragon and Lion Dance.(舞龍舞獅)
- Stunning performance by Electric Santaizi(三太子)

The most special part is many people welcome Mazu’s sacred sedan chair by waiting in a long line and crawling underneath it. This is called “crawling chair feet (「躦轎腳」)”. We believe that we’re gonna be blessed by her, and everything will go smoothly and we will be secure as long as you go worshiping.

Let’s experience this Taiwanese folk festival and immerse ourselves in this holiday spirit.

Transportation: HSR (Taipei -> Taichung) & Train (Taichung to Taipei)
Date: 4/22
06:30 Taipei ->Ching Shuei (Tze-Chiang, coast line), then Ching Shuei ->台中港 (Local Train)
