2011 Guangzhou Liede Dragon Boats Gathering/2011廣州獵德扒龍舟
While China’s dragon boat festival and race is well known around the world, it’s offspring, “Lie De Pa Long Zhou” (literal translation: dragon boats gathering at Lie De) has been a traditional folk custom event held annually on the river of the Lie De village in Guangzhou, China, on the very day of dragon boat festival. it has a history of at least 800 years, and it has been a very important part of cultural landscape for the city of Guangzhou, even Southern China up to today. Instead of the dragon boats from different villages racing against each others, Pa Long Zhou has been more of a “carnival on water”where boats from different nearby villages are “well-dressed” and shown off. loud drum beat and firecrackers are integral part of the event. it’s fun, load, and very vivid.
