2018 Shanglin "Duhegong" Folk Culture Event opens

Date:2018-06-13

The Dragon Boat Festival on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month is one of the largest traditional festivals in China. On the Dragon Boat Festival, every family in Sanli Town, Shanglin County, Guangxi gathered together to celebrate the local folk event at the clear and small river -- drifting the “Duhegong”.

The “Duhegong” folk custom was formed in the Ming Dynasty and has a history of more than 400 years. In 2008, "Duhegong" handicrafts were listed in the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region. Every evening on the Dragon Boat Festival, local men and women, old and young in Sanli Town spontaneously flock to the small river in the south bank of the town -- Huishui River. A major "Duhegong" event is held along the Huishui Bridge where rivers and streams converge.
