Fire Dragon Dance

If you are in Hong Kong on 2-4 October when the city is celebrating mid-autumn festival, you may want to go see a century old festival event – the Fire Dragon Dance – in Tai Hang, Causeway Bay.

The Fire Dragon Dance draws a large crowd each year. So do expect that it will be packed.

According to the legend, Tai Hang, once a village, was struck by a plague. The plague disappeared after a fire dragon dance was performed. Since then, Fire Dragon Dance has become a tradition, not only in Tai Hang, but also of Hong Kong.

The “Dragon” will be covered by burning incense, making it like a fire dragon, thereby the name Fire Dragon Dance.
