* Hot Spring Season at Dongpu has begun A parade with 1000-people holding torches along the street hanging with lanterns led the event to a climax
Date : 103/12/15
2014 Nantou Hot Spring and Flower Blossom Carnival – “The Love of Yushan and the Affection of Dongpu” activities series began with a vivid opening ceremony on November 1 at Tumpu Elementary School. On that day, Chen Chih-ching, the Acting County Magistrate, Shih Chiang, the Mayor of Xinyi Township, and about a thousand attendants joined the event. Dressed in yukata, they followed the Samba drum team to parade along the streets. With torches in their hands, they joined together to form a fiery dragon. Fireworks were released, lighting up the dark sky in and bringing happiness to Dongpu Township.

Magistrate Chen expressed that in “Nantou Hot Spring and Flower Blossom Carnival” this year, there was a “visiting Nantou in the winter, a grand luck lottery draw.” Visitors checking in the special hotels in the three hot spring areas—Dongpu, Puli, and Beigang River, would be presented with various lottery tickets depending on the number of visitors and room types. They might win great prizes, including cars, televisions, and more. When visitors came to Nantou, they could also take the opportunity to watch the flowers grown in different townships there, including “Plum Blossom in the Snow”—the plum watching activities at Xinyi Township, the Cherry Blossom Season at Caopingtou, the cherry blossom gardens in Chi Nan University, the tulip and peony yards at Sunlin River district, and more. These were great scenic spots for visitors.

On that day, the band MOVE and Damaluwan Cultural & Art Troupe (Mintamasaz) announced the opening ceremony with their performances of eight-part harmony. Later, Magistrate Chen, Mayor Shi, and Li Chi-tien, the Deputy Director of The Hot Spring Tourism Association Taiwan, and many other guests pressed the switch to lower down the magic ball and announced the beginning of the Donpu Hot Spring Season together.

That night, led by the Small Samba Drum Team and Tika Samba Dance Troupe, Magistrate Chen, Mayor Shi, and about a thousand attendants paraded along the streets with torches in their hands. The enthusiastic parade team looked like a fiery dragon from a distance. At the end of the event, fireworks were released suddenly, winning exclaims and surprises. What a magnificent scene!

After the opening ceremony of “The Love of Yushan and the Affection of Dongpu”, there will be series of various activities held in the coming weekends during November and December, including performances presented by different bands, gourmet food galas, and more. The first activity in the series – “Marathon for Hot Blooded Runners” was held on November 22, with about 1,500 participants, bringing the hot spring season to another climax.
