Transformers, Monkey King to grace Kaohsiung Lantern Festival parade (2014/02/11)

Lantern Festival is this Friday. Among the most anticipated events is an evening parade in Kaohsiung that will feature favorite fictional characters.

Bumblebee and Optimus Prime from the Transformers…

…the Handsome Monkey King from the Chinese classic “Journey to the West”…

…and face changing, an astonishing device of Sichuan opera.

These characters will take part in a parade this Friday. The event is being held as part of the Kaohsiung Lantern Festival.

Hsu Chuan-sheng
Kaohsiung Tourism Bureau Chief
We have over 10 parade vehicles and dozens of performance groups. We will also hand out 20,000 small lanterns.

The parade will also include an exact replica of the raft featured in the Ang Lee film “The Life of Pi.” It was made by the same company which created the original boat.

The boat is part of the background. There will be a tiger, the young boy and many flying fish.

The parade begins at 7 pm Friday in the Wufu shopping area.
