Guilin Dragon Boat Festival Overview
Dragon Boat Festival, or the Duanwujie, is on the fifth day of the fifth month of Chinese lunar calendar. It is a custom to have Dragon Boat racing every 5 years. It was originally a festival to memorize a great poet, Quyuan, who was also a patriot 2000 years ago, but it is also believed that the celebration of Dragon Boat Racing may bring a good harvest and a peaceful river. A lot of fire works will be played, sacrifice of rice dumpling will be offered to the “God’ of Dragon, and the locals will sing a lot of boating songs.
