TAINAN CITY, Taiwan
(TraNews) – Under the starry night, the reflection of moon is right besides the dragon boats as if racing with them. Dragon boat contest hosted at nighttime appears interesting and characteristic.

Fucheng Dragon Boat Contest is hosted annually in Tainan City and is regarded one of the most important events of the year. The contest started to host at nighttime since 2004 and therefore attracts more people than before. The venue features great tradition and interesting activities.

There are several rituals to practice before the contest begins. Locals will worship and give libation to Mazu. After reading sacrificial writing, people will sprinkle wine along the river to keep away demons. The whole ritual is grand and respecting.

The other reason that the contest has gathered throngs of people is the shining light on each dragon boat. The dragon boats have made the whole river and Tainan city even more glamorous. Do you want to have a unforgettable experience on Dragon Boat Festival? If your answer is yes, then be sure to participate in the venue this year!
