Enter the dragon

The Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance will take place throughout the three-day Mid Autumn Festival. Made of straw, the 67-metre long model dragon will light up with over 24,000 burning incense sticks and be carried by over 300 men to the sound of drums and gongs. It will start at Wun Sha Street and continue through King Street, Sun Chun Street, Tung Lo Wan Road, and return to the starting point to add incense. Dating back 138 years, the tradition began with a plague following a typhoon that swept into the fishing and farming community of Tai Hang. The plague only disappeared after villagers made the Fire Dragon.

Dates: 23-25 September

Venue: Tai Hang, Causeway Bay

Times: 8:15 p.m. – 10:30 p.m. on 23-24 September, 8:15 p.m. – 10:00 p.m. on 25 September
