Milkfish Festival
Lantern Festival
  The Lantern Festival
 The Miso Temple is more than two centuries old. It has developed into the center of faith for most Mituo residents. During each Lantern Festival, believers ask for “turtles”, which have been looked upon as a symbol of longevity. The temple produces red turtles and flower turtles.  
 On the evening of the Lantern Festival, namely the 15th day of January on the Chinese Lunar calendar, the temple gives out turtles. Believers ask for the turtles as a token of happiness and prosperity for the coming year. The temple also holds ceremonies and carries Matzu around the township. That is an annual event in Mituo.
