From 1986.

Buddhist ceremony.

One of Taiwan's top folk festivals, this involves inviting gods to earth, feasting them, and then asking them to carry trouble-causing demons and plagues away with them on a boat. In the spectacular conclusion, the boat is torched to the ground on the beach.

The festival is held every three years in the old port town of Donggang.
