About Tuen Ng Festival
Tuen Ng Festival is also known as the Dragon Boat Festival. It is observed on fifth day of fifth month of Chinese calendar. Today, water remains central to the festival and each year teams compete in dramatic dragon boat races. Failing to find Chu Yuan, people hit drums and making loud noised hoping to scare the fish and won't touch Chu Yuan's body. People lived along the river also put cooked rice in the river as a sacrifice. But then they found that the fish got the rice so people wrapped the cooked rice in bamboo leaves. This evolves to present day's rice dumplings. Today, festival activities recall this legendary event. People eat rice-and-meat dumplings wrapped in bamboo leaves; and many look forward to swimming or even simply dipping their hands in the water. The real highlight of the festival is the fierce-looking dragon boats racing in a lively, vibrant spectacle. Part of the celebrations includes eating glutinous rice dumplings wrapped in lotus leaves. The festival of Tuen Ng centers on long dragon boats racing, which is the charm of the show.
