Bravo Takes Boston by Storm

Bravo Takes Boston by StormThe Double Ten Day parade in Boston on October 6 saw the attendance of Taipei City’s official mascot – Bravo Bear!
 
The Department of Information and Tourism (TPEDOIT) expressed its gratitude to both Boston City Hall for inviting the mascot and Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Boston for its assistance. This is a very important international occasion for the city government’s mascot, to not only promote Taipei’s tourism resources, but also to conduct exchange with Taipei’s sister city in the US.
 
Joining Taiwanese expats in the city, Bravo joined the parade at Boston’s Chinatown and later arrived at the Boston City Hall Plaza, with spectators cheering for him all along the way.
 
In addition to taking part in the Double Ten Day parade, Bravo also had the chance to visit location such as the historical Fenway Park and Massachusetts Institute of Technology during his sojourn.
 
The bear mascot was also invited to attend the opening of an American football match as the guest of honor, demonstrating his sports genes to the spectators at the game.
