Taipei, April 10 (CNA) An annual City God festival kicked off Saturday in offshore Kinmen County and will culminate in a one-day City God parade on May 7.

Jincheng Township chief Shih Chao-min (石兆瑉) said the month-long Wudao (another name for Kinmen) Religious and Cultural Tourism Festival is famous around the world, and the township, with its rich Minnan (southern Fujian Province) cultural heritage, has been recognized as one of the Republic of China's (Taiwan's) top 10 tourism towns.

The festival's opening ceremony was held at the Wudao City God Temple in Jincheng Township on Saturday, with Deputy Kinmen County Magistrate Wu Cheng-tien (吳成典) also present.

A parade of human-powered "centipede seats" -- children dressed up as drama characters on seats (litters) carried on adults' shoulders -- will be held on April 16.

An international lion dance contest, now in its fifth year, will be held in Kinmen County Stadium on April 29 and 30 and feature lion dance groups from home and abroad, including Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore and China's Guangdong Province.

The City God pilgrimage, now in its 337th year, is held on the twelfth day of the fourth month of the Chinese lunisolar calendar, which falls on May 7 this year.

The parade celebrates the City God Temple's move from one site to another on the island more than 330 years ago during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911).

Taiwan-held Kinmen is located just 10 kilometers from China's southeastern coast.
