Taijiang Dragon Lantern Festival

Taijiang Dragon Lantern Festival is celebrated with great gusto in Tajiang, near Kaili, where the entertainment takes n a unique flavor. Several groups in Taijiang, from the period of the 1st to 15th of the first lunar month, make large paper dragons that are manipulated by 10-15 men. Children are given straw dragons.

On the 15th night they weave through the streets stopping at different households. Each householder gives them money and liquor to ensure good luck for the family during the coming year, the paper-made dragon can't enter. The main street is filled with giant homemade fireworks made from bamboo and packed with gunpowder. These are lit and the flames directed at the dragons. The center of activity is outside the local government building where all the dragons come to receive money. Often there are as many as 30 to 35 dragons to destroy. The excitement continues until midnight with the unmarried ending the festivals by singing love songs to each other.
