Taitung County, Taiwan –


The yearly “Lantern Festival Takes a Stroll”, also known as a blessing procession pilgrim, is one of most prominent and vigorous activities for the duration of Lantern Festival. During this folk carnival, the pick-up trucks will be loaded up with drums and gongs playing rhythmically and loud. Such rhythmic sound has been called as “Dong-Dong-Pound” by local children, which has been part of many people’s childhood memories.

In recent years, the blessing procession pilgrim is primarily moving around in Taitung City for two days long. The procession route is basically crowded by native-born people and nationwide tourists the whole time.

During the procession, the streets are filled with joyful and festive atmosphere. People are filled with excitement and expectation, watching a long row of parade floats, dragon troupes, lion troupes, etc. walking in the streets. Everywhere the parade goes, the firecrackers will set off and the excitements will follow. The entire city will be celebrating the Lantern Festival.

The blessing procession pilgrim brings together all kinds of folk performing groups and martial art troupes to gather here, such as General Commanders (Guan Jiang Shou), Eight Generals (Ba Chia Jiang), Big & Small Sedan Chairs, Lion’s Troupe, etc. Practically all kinds of martial art footwork will be presented in the procession. As this folk festivity has rocked people’s impression for traditional folkways, it has deepened people’s recognition for folk culture.

廖祐笙/台東縣

  元宵節的祈福繞境遊行活動,是台東的年度民俗盛事,發財車上載的戰鼓與鑼聲齊作響,其富有節奏性的聲響被台東當地的小朋友稱作「咚咚鏘」,是陪伴許多人的兒時回憶。

  近年來的祈福繞境遊行,都是以台東市區為主要活動範圍,兩天的活動時間分別在南北向及東西向街道遊行,從四維路出發,直到天后宮入廟後才畫下句點。遊行路線上到處都是人山人海,許多外地的朋友也特地來到這裡,一同體驗有如大型廟會的民俗盛事。

  遊行過程中,街道上瀰漫著一股人心浮動的喜悅感,不管是參與其中或是圍觀的朋友,全都充滿著興奮與期待,看著長長一排的遊行花車、陣頭與廟宇主神出巡,鞭炮聲此起彼落,歡喜祝賀著元宵節慶。

  繞境遊行活動讓各式陣頭與民俗技藝團體齊聚街頭,嘉年華會般的氣氛讓整個台東都動了起來。此起彼落的鞭炮聲,慶祝著這場傳統的文化慶典,許多精彩陣頭表演,像是官將首、八家將、大小轎、醒獅團,幾乎所有的陣勢步法都在遊行中現身,像極了一場民俗藝術的大會串,撼動人心的同時,也加深對於民俗文化的認同。
