2019 Pacific Hot Spring and Float Carnival – Morioka Dashi in Hualien
“The 2019 Pacific Hot Spring and Float Carnival – Morioka Dashi in Hualien” is a carnival that incorporates hot springs and float parade. A total of 45 sets of floats and parade teams will participate in the event. For the fourth time, the event invited the Morioka Dashi, Sansa Odori Dance Troupe and Sawame Shishi Dance Group from Japan’s Iwate Prefecture to perform live and arrange a grand Japanese starry sky show, creating a Japanese-style hot spring and float festival so you can feel the original Dashi parade without going abroad. The event is held in a location adjacent to the Dongdaemun Night Market, offering a variety of local cuisine to satisfy the visual and taste banquets for tourists. It is expected to attract more in-depth cultural trips from domestic and international visitors to Hualien.
