The best entertainment of this day is Dragon Boat racing. I will introduce in the following day.

And peole will go to Dragon Mother Temple to pay intribute to Dragon Mother, other Bodhisattva and pray for their family. The tribute include special papercut which is like a boat, Chinese "Xiang" and other special things.

People will have dinner all together of whole village. So they will put tables on the street so that everyone of the village can have dinner together. The village which i visited is set over 1,000 tables on the street, it was really very grand that i have never seen.
