The China Post - - ARTS - BY ERICK CHEN

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.
