The Dragon Boat Festival, also called Duanwu or Tuen Ng Festival, is a traditional holiday observed annually in China over 2,000 years. Since the Chinese calendar is lunisolar, the date of the festivals varies either on May or June every year in the Gregorian calendar. In 2017, the festival will be held on May 30.
There are various activities prepared by Chinese people to celebrate this festival. These rituals include the cooking and eating large quantities of zongzi or rice wraps and the drinking of realgar wine. People can enjoy the food being offered via water through dipping or even swimming.
In the second part of the ritual, there will be a dragon boat racing which gave the festival its name. This is no competition and everyone can participate as long as they have the energy.
