The heartbeat of Taiwan – Baozhong Feast Day

文字-A A +A

The annual Lantern Festival, which takes place in No. 14 Wugu Hamlet, Baozhong Township, Yunlin County, saw exciting activities from ZhenAn Temple as well as a feast to bestow auspicious blessings on the people – the festival activities attracted tens of thousands of participants. ZhenAn Temple’s Wang Ye God weaves through the ranks of people who wait to be blessed with peace and security. Mothers also bring along their children to give them instructions on how to carry out this age-old tradition ensuring this important ritual will be preserved for posterity.

A count down finally starts the main event of the day’s, which is a huge feast where the people ask for the blessing of various Gods – according to the organizer’s statistics, this year saw around sixty thousand people. On watching the scenes unfold from a field, the citizen journalist covering the story was simply lost for words at the incredible sight. Although Yunlin has seen a huge outflow of people in recent years, those remaining in the villages have united together and worked hard to ensure that this grand feast doesn’t diminish in size.

【心跳‧台灣-03】褒忠吃飯擔 ( 單車小賢 )

每年元宵節在雲林縣褒忠鄉五股十四庄都會舉辦「鎮安宮五年千歲遶境活動」與保祐平安的「吃飯擔」活動,吸引數萬人參加。鎮安宮王爺巡境,綿延無盡等著「鑽轎底」的民眾隊伍,都希望祈求平安,還有媽媽帶著孩子,教導他們練習鑽轎底,在這輕鬆的一幕中也完成了文化的承傳。而重點壓軸就是數萬人一起用餐的「吃飯擔」活動,今年根據主辦單位統計約有六萬人共同參與,在主持人倒數與一聲令下之後,一起開動用餐,祈求神明保祐平安順遂,公民記者在農田看到這光景,簡直只有讚嘆可以形容,雖然現今因為雲林縣人口嚴重外流,人口少的村子合併辦理,但「吃飯擔」傳統習俗的盛況還是不減。
