Exciting Moments of the Sihui Dragon Boat Race


Characteristics of the Sihui Dragon Boat Race

The Four Sessions have a history of over 2200 years,

There is a tradition of dragon boat racing.

More than thirty years ago,

A dragon boat race spontaneously organized by farmers

It is also highly distinctive.

Old photos one after another,

It records the "Dragon Boat Love" of the people of the Four Meetings.

In 1989, a dragon boat race was held in the upstream section of Dugang Bridge. Although the podium was simple, the audience was still enthusiastic. (Source: Sihui Home)

After decades of historical changes,

The people of Sihui are paying increasing attention to dragon boat races,

The scale of the competition is also increasing.

Not only are there many highlights, but there is also a sense of ceremony~

The "Bihaiwan Cup" dragon boat race is a large-scale dragon boat competition in Sihui City, attracting many citizens to watch every year.

The "Water Sacrifice" Ceremony

For the purpose of smooth, auspicious, and safe racing,

Before the start of the competition,

A grand dragon boat "water sacrifice" ceremony will be held,

At the same time, I also pray for a year of good weather.

Dragon Boat Eyes

Give the dragon boat a finishing touch before the race starts,

It is also an important traditional ritual.

Dragon Boat Eyes

Derived from the saying 'finishing touch',

It has a beautiful meaning of peace and auspiciousness.

The atmosphere is warm and the streets are filled with people

After the start of the competition,

Hundreds of athletes compete on the water,

Tens of thousands of spectators cheered on the shore,

It can be said that the streets are empty and the whole city is boiling,


Dragon Boat Rice

Some people say that watching the dragon boat and eating the dragon boat meal is the true celebration of the Dragon Boat Festival. Eating "dragon boat rice" is an important part of dragon boat culture. After the dragon boat race, the organizer organized the participating teams to have dragon boat meals, and everyone gathered together to celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival.

Saihe Boat

Besides the grand dragon boat race,

In Shigou Town, Sihui, Daixia Village,

There is a traditional folk activity during the Dragon Boat Festival - boat racing.

It has a history of several hundred years.

Every year during the Dragon Boat Festival, the villagers who lead the village will spontaneously organize and hold a rowing competition. Since 2014, this long-standing folk sports competition has become the most grand event of the Dragon Boat Festival in Daixia Village. Not only do people from hundreds of miles come from all directions to both sides of the Qushui River, but even those living outside will return to their hometown for the festival, enjoying the excitement and joy.

@Sihui people,

The dragon boat race that the whole city is looking forward to is coming soon,
