In just three week’s time, the Keelung River will be abuzz with boats. A stretch of river just within view of RTI’s studios will play host to one of Taipei’s big annual festivals, the Dajia Riverside Park Dragon Boat Races. This annual event is an early celebration of one of the biggest holidays of the year, the early summer Dragon Boat Festival. Whether by joining in the boat races or just cheering from the sidelines with some traditional food in hand, there are plenty of ways for visitors to Taiwan to take part in the festivities. Here to tell us about the Dragon Boat Festival and how Taipei celebrates each year is one of the organizers of the boat race, Mr. Luo from the Taipei City Department of Sports.
