The Zuoying Wannian Festival will be held on 13th – 14th November 2010 in Kaohsiung. The town of Zuoying definitely has a charm and thus attracts a large crowd to the area.
Zuoying used to be the capital city of Southern Tainan which was nicknamed ‘Wannian‘. This is how Kaohsiung’s Zuoying Festival got its name. The festival will take place at Lotus Lake. There will be Taiwanese dance, fireworks, a lion dance, a sword contest, folklore activities and much more. You will find many regional specialty foods such as beef noodle soup and steamed buns, making it an excellent opportunity to try some local foods.
