Mid-Autumn Festival - A Talk on the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance

The Tai Hang fire dragon dance is a festive activity that has been held for more than a hundred years. It was inscribed onto the third National List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2011, and is one of the twenty items on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Hong Kong. Every year, during the Mid-Autumn Festival, the residents of Tai Hang Village would perform a fire dragon parade around the village vicinity as a ritual to ward off evil and invoke blessings. The talk will be conducted by Mr. Chan Tak Fai, Commander-in-Chief of the annual event. He will talk about the crafting of the fire dragon, the ritual details such as consecration, the fire dragon dance, and the ‘sending off' of the dragon.

A Docent Guide to the Autumn Ancestral Worship of Clans

Ancestral worship is a highly regarded tradition among the clans in the New Territories. Every year, around the time of the Vernal Equinox and Autumnal Equinox (in the fourth and ninth months on the lunar calendar), the clansmen would gather at the ancestral hall of their village or at the ancestors' graves to pay their respects in a ritual of worship. This activity will be in the form of a guided tour led by Mr. Tang Kwai Leung, a native of the Tang clan in Ha Tsuen. He will take the participants on a site visit to the Tang Ancestral Hall, offer details about the folk custom, its history and culture, and tell the stories behind the Hall.
