This festival dates back to about 2,000 years ago with a number of legends explaining its origin. The best-known story centers o­n a great patriotic poet named Qu Yuan, who drowned himself o­n this day out of helplessness amid his declining nation.

The special boats are long and thin with dragon heads o­n the bow of the ships. The race is said to represent the search for Qu's body, with racing boats in a forward rowing motion, to the rhythm of beating drums.

Chinese people also eat Zong Zi, little packets of glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo leaves, which was originally thrown into the river to keep the fishes from eating the body of Qu Yuan.

In addition, it is said that when hearing the news of Qu Yuan's suicide, some doctors poured realgar wine into the Miluo River to anaesthetize the fishes, hence preventing them from eating Qu Yuan's body.
