I Am the God of Fire

HK Magazine - - THE WEEK -

Back in the 1800s, Tai Hang vil­lagers staved off a plague and a ty­phoon by per­form­ing a fire dance for three straight days and nights. The tra­di­tion has con­tin­ued to this day with the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance, in which vil­lagers light a long, in­cense-stud­ded dragon and pa­rade it through the streets. Make sure to get there early for a good view, as places go quick.

Sep 14-16, 8:15-10:30pm. Tai Hang (van­tage point on Wun Sha St.)
