Private Miao Dragon Boat Festival Tour to Shidong(Jun 2017)-accepting travelers!

 Miao Dragon Boat Festival in Shidong

 The Miao dragon boat festival along the Qingshuijiang river is called " Cha Weng" in Miao language, it is also called " Lou Weng" which means eating dragon meat. During May 24 to May 27 of the lunar month, the Miao along the Qingshuijiang in Shidong of Taijiang county, Pingzhai, of Shibin county celebrate the dragon boat festival.
 There are several legends can tell from why there is this festival. One legend goes, one day, a fisherman and his son caught fish on the Bala river, then his son was caught by the bad dragon and taken to the dragon's home in the river. The fisherman was very sad and angry, he decided to kill the dragon, so he used fire to burn the dragon palace and the dragon, he cut the dragon into several pieces, the villagers came to eat the dragon meat, thus it became dark for 9 days and 9 nights. One day, a women with a little girl came to the river side and washed clothes, her daughter used rice straw to tie a wooden mallet and pulled it up and down on the water, she imitated the sound of gong and drum- 'dong, dong, dong, dang, dong, dong, dong, dang", then it became bright days. So the villagers made dragon boats following the wood mallet's shape, they rolled dragon boats and beat drums and gongs on the river, thus this festival came into being.

I've seen the dragon boat festival a few times ago, but that time I didn't have a good camera, so this year I decided to go to Shidong again and took some pictures of the dragon boat festival. About 13:30, I arrived at the river side in Shidong, when I got there, a few dragon boats were already placed by the river side carrying goose, ducks on the dragon head as gifts. Before placing the dragon boat into the river, the shaman need to do a ceremony first, he killed a chicken, offered some rice wine to worship the dragon.
Around 3 o'clock in the afternoon, more and more boat came, and there will be the dragon boat race on the river, but it will reach the climax between 3:30-4:30, and I left there 3:05, so I didn't have pictures of the climax.
Anyway, the festival was great. This year, many Chinese photographers came to join the festival, and they more liked to be aggressive for pictures, so I don't think it's worth for a large group to visit, it's just suitable for private tourists under 5 or 6 people, because it's crowded and there is no enough place for taking good pictures.
