Macau: Feast of the Drunken Dragon Slated for April 28

Feast of the Drunken Dragon

Riotously celebrated in Macau, this year’s Feast of the Drunken Dragon is set to take place on April 28. The annual Chinese tradition — which has made it onto UNESCO’s intangible heritage list — commemorates the legend of a village’s miraculous recovery from the plague after a Buddhist monk slew a sea dragon. The day’s festivities include local fishermen dancing with wooden dragons in a procession that takes them from the Kuan Tai Temple near Senado Square to Macau’s Inner Harbour … with several stops along the way to guzzle wine.
