Fire Dragon Dance

The Fire Dragon Dance is a tradition from Guangdong, where people believed it could bring good luck; it was recognized nationally as a key element of the intangible cultural heritage. Today, the custom lives on in Hong Kong and is a key element of the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration.
