In the same year, Tainan City held the first wind band festival to celebrate the band’s foundation, which attracted lots of residents to join the occasion. Tainan Symphonic Band also drew more than 4,000 people to attend their performance in 2016. Wind band music has gradually become a custom in Tavocan cultural plaza, and there will be no exception this year. This year’s wind band festival is going to be remarkable. For example, the whole festival will last for three months, which is one month longer than before. Moreover, this is the first time there is a launching parade in the festival.
