9 Emperor God Festival Parade. (Part 1 )

These are the photos taken during the 9 Emperor God Festival Parade in my wifey hometown, Taiping. The parade was held on the 8th day of the festival, which falls on the 18th October. I found this year 9 Emperor God Festival is much more happening compared to last year. Anyway, please pardon me for my poor handling in snapping the photos.........
And here we go...........
