After yesterday’s post about the dragon getting ready, it’s time to show the dragon in full swing!
The only problem with that is that there were too many people on Wun Sha road (and we had not queued up for hours), so once it was 9pm and the dragon was dancing, there was no way for us to reach the street and see the dragon. We could only see the backside of the people in front of us.
Luckily for me, my friend Monica lives above Wun Sha road, so we had prime view from her flat. We walked upstairs and watched the show unfold below.
First, kids carrying lanterns appeared on the road. A sign that said ‘Tin Hau Fire Dragon Dance’ was unveiled.
Finally, the dragon has arrived – and it was loud and wild. It danced on the street, making a lot of noise, blowing out smoke and spitting out fire crackers. It was quite a spectacle!
One more video to show the dragon live in action:
After that, the Dragon made its way to the Fire Dragon Path that leads to Victoria Park…
