Mazu, Goddess of the Empty Sea, is the Chinese patron goddess who protects seafarers, such as fishermen and sailors.­

In front of Mazu, "Thousand-Mile Eye" (千里眼, Qianli Yan), one of Goddess Mazu's two guardians generals.­

In the back, the Zulai Hand art car.­ Zulai is one of the gods in Chinese culture, it represents mercy and love.­ Note: It looks amazingly like Buddha!

Procession of the Mazu crew, an all-Chinese camp with amazing art and a Brazilian drum marching band.­

The members of the Mazu camp were all Chinese, mostly from Taiwan, with some coming from Hong Kong and Mainland China (PRC, aka People's Republic of China).­
