The Tai Hang Fire Dragon is a 67m long straw head & tail in 32 sections. The head alone weighs 48kg. The dragon is
covered with 70 000 lit incense sticks & is carried by nearly 300 performers. It runs & dances around a maze of small
streets in what was once a small fishing village. The tradition, always coinciding with Mid Autumn Festival, has been
celebrated since the 1880s.
