Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance 2013

Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance 2013 (hkdigit-20130916-134222-01)

When the people of Tai Hang village miraculously stopped a plague with a fire dragon dance in the 19th century, they inadvertently launched a tradition that has since become part of China’s official intangible cultural heritage. The village has since been replaced by a city, but the ceremony lives on.

Three days, more than 200 performers, tens of thousands of sticks of incense and a 67-metre dragon that wends its way through the crowded streets of Tai Hang, or Big Water Channel.
