活動簡章

台灣雲火龍的故鄉在三義,風景秀麗純樸客家小城,多霧的環境,讓雲火龍在此保存著樸實的客鄉原味與傳統。稻米是客家人傳統的主食,稻草更是農村隨手可得的製作材料,昔日鄉親們每於農閒時節,用稻草、稻桿、稻草繩及竹片編製成草龍,自娛娛人、其樂融融,也因龍身插滿祈福香枝,香火繚繞如雲,「雲火龍」因而聲名遠播,同時發展出一系列民俗,雲火龍節充滿著遶境平安、祈福避邪之意。

2007年由三義雙潭社區傅學榮啟發草創、三義觀光文化發展協會等民間社團積極大力推廣,客家委員會於2008年至2016年將『三義雲火龍節』遴薦為客庄十二大節慶,這項客家獨有的傳統民俗,在三義鄉公所的爭取下,邁入第十一個年頭,『三義雲火龍節』現已成為客庄節慶文化中獨具特色風格之活動。

The hometown of the Fire Dragon from the Cloud is located in Sanyi in Taiwan. This small rustic Hakka town with beautiful scenery and foggy environment allows Fire Dragon from the Cloud to keep the simple Hakka culture and tradition. Rice is the staple food for Hakka people, not to mention that straw is the material which can be got easily. In former days, local people used straws, haulms, straw ropes and bamboo chips to make straw dragons and entertain themselves during the slack season. Furthermore, the straw dragon was stuck by full of incense sticks and the smoke of the incense rose like clouds. As a result, the name of the Fire Dragon from the Cloud spread far and wide and a series of folk customs were developed. The Fire Dragon from the Cloud consists of keeping safe, blessing and avoiding evil spirits.

Inspired and founded by Shuangtan Community, promoted by Sanyi Tourism and Cultural Development Association and other non-governmental organizations, the Fire Dragon from the Cloud Festival was recommended as one of the twelve Hakka Festivals by Hakka Affairs Council from 2008 to 2016. Because of the effort from Sanyi Township Administration, this unique traditional custom has been held for 11 years. Sanyi Fire Dragon from the Cloud Festival has been an activity with unique characteristic and style in Hakka festival culture
