A Parade in Taipei

After my visit to Longshan Temple last Sunday, I wandered around the city. I figured there were other nearby temples and a riverfront park, which I couldn’t seem to find.temple parade taipei

As I wandered, I came across some sort of parade. I saw the dragon dance and plenty of firecrackers. There were some costumes that made me think this had something to do with Taoist traditions.

Then I saw the trucks covered in graffiti and playing club music. And the girls on the back pole dancing. Well, they weren’t so much dancing as they were posing for photos. I was just confused.

There were three trucks like this

I decided it was best to not ask questions; just take a few photos and walk along. Made me think about the Coney Island Mermaid Parade.temple pole dancer taipei
