Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance

 
12-14 A highlight of city-wide Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations, the SEPt villagers across Hong Kong warded off disease and evil spirits with the help of the dancing fire dragon. The best-known rendition of this revered tradition and unique cultural icon is the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance, which features three hundred performers operating the 67-metre-long dragon in a series of carefully choreographed movements, creating a stunning visual effect that burns more than 70,000 incense sticks over a three-day period.
The event has been inscribed on China’s third national list of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) and was recently selected as one of the Remarkable Examples of Good Practice for Safeguarding the National ICH Items. Taking place from 12 to 14 September in Tai Hang, Causeway Bay (best vantage point – Wun Sha Street), the performance will also be held from 10.45pm to 11.30pm in nearby Victoria Park on 13 September. Be sure to join the crowd and dance with the dragon to celebrate this beloved tradition.
 
Schedule: 8.15pm to 10.30pm, 12-13 September; 8.15pm to 10pm, 14 September.
