Celebrate America’s Independence Day
On Saturday, July 4, the Taichung American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham, 台中市美國商會) will host an American Independence Day event (美國獨立紀念日慶祝活動). The party will start at noon and last until 9 p.m. at Taichung’s Calligraphy Greenway (台中草悟道), which is located in the city’s West District (西區) near Hotel National.
The fun festivity includes several highlights that will wow visitors. For instance, it will include nonstop live music performances by various bands and musicians. Most of the musicians performing such as Lauren Leach, 3 Day Bender and Lao Wai Band play American-style music like rock. For music lovers, the event will be entertaining.
Also, visitors will be able to taste scrumptious food provided by various vendors. Although the majority of food vendors at the event will serve all-American food, there will also be vendors providing international food like Indian cuisine. Wellestablished American food chain TGI Fridays (星期五美式餐廳) will be sponsoring an all-American food area, complete with burgers, barbeque, hot dogs, and other American delicacies. For beer lovers, Taiwan Beer (台灣啤酒) will also have a special beer area. On a hot summer day, what could be better than a cold beer, mouthwatering American food or other international delicacies?
Furthermore, the event will also be children-friendly as Cornel English School (康乃爾康爾嘉英語) will sponsor a children’s area with various attractions and fun for kids. With a wide variety of exciting activities, the event will have something for everyone.
Taichung AmCham’s free Independence Day event, which event organizer Douglas Habecker says was started in 1994, is not only Taichung’s oldest large international festival but also Taiwan’s only large public Independence Day celebration. The family-friendly festivity will be a perfect way to celebrate America’s Independence Day.
