Aspect Ratio: 3:2
Tai Hang Head of the Fire Dragon leads the way for 32 sections of the dragon. The head alone weighs 48kg is no easy task to run around the streets for hours on end.
Tai Hang Fire Dragon is a highlight of Mid Autumn festival. There are not many other events from start to finish that show strong local culture and a real sense of community. Even as the community goes through redevelopment the tradition continues.
Mid Autumn Festival = Fire Dragons and Lanterns One of the events that’s on my recommended list of Mid Autumn Festival that also is known under different names such as Moon Festival, Mooncake (edible from traditional with egg inside to new modern twist with ice-cream or chocolate to name a few) Festival, Harvest (originally looked upon as a celebration of that years crops) as well as Lantern Festival.
Tai Hang roots go back to a time when disease ravaged a local district and they called on the dragon to rid the town of it.
