The Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance is one of Mid-Autumn Festival events you definitely should not miss. The spectacular Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance is one of the few Hong Kong traditions which made it on the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List (the other ones are the Cheung Chau Bun Festival, Tai O Dragon Boat Races and the Yu Lan Ghost Festival).

Be prepared for an incredible spectacle of fire and smoke when the 67-meter-long dragon, more than 300 performers and tens of thousands sticks of incense moving through the crowded streets of Tai Hang in Causeway Bay. This year, visitors have the chance to experience the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance over three days and as a highlight also on at the Urban Mid-Autumn Lantern Carnival in Victoria Park.
