This year despite the sun shining the temperatures outside were bitter cold. Had it not been for a friends daughter dancing in the festival, I think we would have gone home after German school and snuggled under the blankets. As in years past, the festival was jammed packed full of attendees. We didn't stay for long, but we had the opportunity to see the Dragon Dance which goes back all they way to the Han Dynasty and is believed to bring power, dignity, fertility, wisdom and auspiciousness to the community. We sampled to yummy Taiwanese food and watched a few performances on the stage. The little ones had a good time and that is all the matters.
