China Airlines wins another trophy in Rose Parade

Los Angeles, Jan. 1 (CNA) China Airlines (CAL), Taiwan's biggest carrier, again won the International Trophy at the 126th Rose Parade held in Pasadena, California on New Year's Day with a float titled "Inspiring Grace of Cloud Gate." The float, a tribute to Taiwan's prestigious Cloud Gate Dance Theatre, featured four dancers performing on the moving vehicle decorated with different flowers and sculptures. Lin Hsin-jen, director of the Tourism Bureau's Los Angeles office, said the float was designed to highlight some of Taiwan's main tourism draws, such as butterflies, flowers and cultural performances, to help attract foreign visitors. The victory marked the 24th year and the 11 consecutive year in which CAL has won the award since it began participating in the parade in 1987. (By Oscar Wu and Y.F. Low)
