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.
A city has since replaced the village, but the ceremony lives on! And you and the whole fam has this chance to enjoy the three-day ceremony facilitated by hundreds of performers, tens of thousands of sticks of incense and a 67-meter dragon that wends its way through the crowded streets in a spectacle of fire and fury!
