Hakka culture festival to revive old traditions and customs

Su-ao, an urban township in northern Taiwan, is well known for its seafood restaurants and cold springs. This weekend, the Hakka community there hopes to revive an old tradition.

Firecrackers are blasted off at the start of a Hakka cultural festival because in the old days, they were thought to ward off wild animals and bad luck. This year, the Su-ao town is reviving the old tradition by holding an event offering lots of delicious local food, traditional crafts and arts.
