Dream Parade is a unique event in East Asia held every October in Taipei, Taiwan. A celebration of life, freedom of expression, and creativity the parade mixes world culture with Hakka, aboriginal, and Chinese traditions plus a little essence of Burning Man. I have covered many festivals and traditional celebrations in Taiwan but this was my first time covering the Dream Parade.
I’ve always so for a few years now that if you really want to see some amazing rituals, festivals, and traditions no one puts on a celebration quite like the Taiwanese do and Dream Parade is no exception. A mix of Mardi Gras, and Brazil’s Carnival in spirit the parade itself features aboriginal groups in drumming and dance sessions, stilt walkers, fire-eaters, giant floats and mascots, and of course samba dancers! Hope you enjoy these highlights from Dream Parade 2017 from Taipei, Taiwan.
