Deaflympics Parade

Beijing gets the Olympics. Taipei gets the Deaflympics. Or is that being unfair?

Anyway, some sort of opening ceremony was passing by at the end of my street, so I grabbed my camera and was met with a Batman-esque (Tim Burton vintage) floating barrage balloon parade. Sports shoes, frogs, sea horses … and all guarded by a team of Star Wars’ Storm Troopers. It just makes so much sense.


Frog (the mascot) I understand (although why choose a frog? What do they have to do with hearing impairment?) Training shoe; I understand. Sea horse? …


Storm Troopers. Yup.


Storm Troopers avec floating training shoe. Use the force!


These are not the droids you are looking for.

    kind of surprise, Taiwan has different parade than politic ones now.

    It looks like a Thanksgiving Parade in New York.
