2011 Nantou Sand Sculpture Festival

Nantou City Sand Sculpture Festival 2011
The now annual Nantou City Sand Sculpture Festival was held last month at its usual location along the Maoluo River.  Cathy and I took my parents there during their visit to Taiwan during the Lunar New Year holiday.  I am happy to report that this year was free of any incidents of vandalism.  Here is a small collection of photographs from the event.

Hope you enjoyed the pictures.  Unfortunately I didn’t get around to posting this until after the event was over.  Next time I’ll try to be a little more time punctual in case any of my readers are interested in visiting.  In the meantime, you can view posts of the 2009 and 2010 Sand Sculpture Festivals.
