Taiwanese processions

Today is 繞境, or RaoJing, a national Taoist festival here in Taiwan. I've always said Taoism is to Buddhism what Catholicism is to Protestantism. The Taoists get the cool decorations in their temples, the many gods (or saints), and the interesting processions. This one was no exception, and since the participants took their lunchbreak outside my apartment, I got to take some pictures. Enjoy!
