In addition to promoting traditional, historical, and innovative cultural activities, large-scale tourist festivals do stimulate a surge in the number of tourists, activate the economy, and elevate domestic nationals’ quality of life in the field of spirit, arts, and culture. Dragon boat racing has long been a folk activity indispensable to Chinese on the Dragon Boat Festival. Moreover, it is a sports event which best represents the significance of teamwork. Nowadays, dragon boat racing is not only the optimal approach to physical training, better team rapport, and excellent teamwork, but also an important folk competition held on every Dragon Boat Festival by countries and cities nationwide (Information Office of Kaohsiung City Government, 2006). The Department of Sports of Kaohsiung City has included dragon boat racing in the list of annual folk competitions, and established nighttime competitions and international speed racing in 2007. The number of participating teams increased from 67 in 2001 to 136 in 2008, and the number of participators surprisingly increased from 1,345 in 2001 to 3,734 in 2008 (Kaohsiung City Stadium, 2006a; Department of Sports of Kaohsiung City, 2008).
This study takes the participators and tourists of the 2008 Kaohsiung Dragon Boat Competition as its research subjects. Adapted from “Large-Scale Tourist Festivals & Events Held by Kaohsiung City Government in 2008: Questionnaire for Satisfaction & Performance on 2008 Kaohsiung Dragon Boat Competition” (Chang & Syu, 2008), the questionnaires tailor-made for this study are distributed to randomly selected subjects. A total of 1,220 valid questionnaires are returned. In the first stage of questionnaire distribution, representatives of each participating team were informed on the team leader’s meeting dated June 2, 2008 of filling a questionnaire, and those questionnaires distributed were returned on June 8. In the second stage, questionnaires were distributed at areas near the Love River in Kaohsiung City between June 6 and 8, 2008.
This study analyzes the data collected by using Cronbach’s α value, internal consistency reliability, frequency distribution, percentage, cumulative percentage, mean, standard deviation, independent samples t-test, one-way ANOVA, and Scheffe post-hoc comparison.
According to the research findings, the mean of the overall administration benefits of the Dragon Boat Competition reaches 5.12, showing that participators tend to highly agree upon the performance of the Competition. Additionally, the Competition has positive contributions to various variables, such as Sports/Recreational/Cultural/Educational Benefit, City Marketing Benefit, Tourism Benefit, and Attraction Benefit.
Furthermore, it is recommended to make the best use of local resources on hand, push forward marketing on the city, culture, and arts, and integrate certain images into the print media and advertisements when similar activities are held in the future, for the sake of a boom in tourism as well as greater tourist and economic benefits.
