May 31st, 2015 No comments

The Chinese Dragon Boat Festival falls on the 5th day of the 5th month in the lunar calendar, or June 20th this year. There are two parts to this major festival, rice tamales (zhongzi or joong in Cantonese) are eaten. And the other renowned activity is dragon boat racing. The two traditions go hand in hand— based on a historical patriotic poet named Qu Yuan, who lived about 2,000 years ago. He was beloved by the common people but could not help them because of corrupt officials. He chose to jump into the river rather than obey the emperor’s orders. People respected his heroic act and they made zhongzi during this time of year, throwing them into the river so sea creatures would not eat his flesh. Traditionally, dragon boat races include lots of drumming to scare away any creatures who would approach his body. In commemorating this historical event, and the 3rd most important festival in Chinese tradition, ABCT will feature lion dancing, Chinese folk music folk dancing, and the symbolic festival food of zhongzi.
