The Dragon Boat Festival (Duan Wu Jie;端午节) is a traditional Chinese holiday which occurs on the fifth day of the fifth month of the Chinese calendar. Its current iteration is an amalgamation of multiple different festivals and traditions. The Dragon Boat Festival is a celebration where many eat rice dumplings (zongzi), drink realgar wine (xionghuangjiu) and the most important part- race dragon boats.

dragon boat

Dragon boat racing has been a traditional Chinese paddled watercraft activity for over 2000 years and began as a modern international sport in Hong Kong in 1976. These boats are typically made of carbon fiber, fiberglass, and other lightweight materials. For competition events, dragon boats are generally rigged with decorative Chinese dragon heads and tails. At other times (such as during training), decorative regalia is usually removed, although the drum often remains aboard for drummers to practice. For races, there are 18-20 people in a standard boat, and 8-10 in a small boat, not including the steersperson (helm) and the drummer.
