The parade on 18 April 2009 天后誕巡遊

18 April 2009 was the day for celebrating the birthday of "Tin Hou", the goddess of the sea. Birthday of "Tin Hou" is calcuated according to the Chinese calendar, the 23th day of the third month of the year.

That was the first time I joined to enjoy this special celebration and traditional parade. It's a wonderful experience. After lots of lion dances, there was the special ChiuChow traditional dancing. A very nice dance with lots of performers with their face full of makeup. The parade last for 3 hours and rains came in a sudden when the parade almost finished. We were so lucky that it didn't rain for most of the time. Let's have a look on some of my photos. If you want to view more, please visit my album.
