International Camping Event to Take Place at Huazhong Riverside Park

The 17th Asia Pacific Rally of the Fédération Internationale de Camping (FICC) will be taking place in Taipei between October 9 and 13 at the Huazhong Riverside Park camping grounds.

Boasting over 500 camping positions, the riverside park will host campers from around the world, including visitors from Finland, Belgium, Holland, Germany, England, Japan, Korea, China, Malaysia, and Singapore. There will be over 30 camping clubs and associations from Taiwan taking part in this event as well. The organizer expects approximately 2000 participants (500 families) to show up at the Asia Pacific Rally this year.According to the President of the Camping Association of the ROC (CAROC) Fred Jan, this is the first time for the association to hold a major international camping event inside a city park. The decision in choosing Taipei City as the host demonstrates the organization’s confidence in the city government’s achievements in building and developing riverside parks. FICC President Joao Alves Pereira personally visited the venue in May of 2013 and expressed his approval of the site. The Hydraulic Engineering Office indicated that residents interested in taking part in the 17th Asia Pacific Rally camping event can contact CAROC (TEL:02-27132066) or visit the website of the event (http://en.camp.org.tw/17thaprficc.php).
