In Yujiabao Village, Ningxiang City, the tradition of dragon dance has a long history. The distinctive fire dragon is quite different from the dragon lanterns elsewhere. Long dragons churn  up and down in the hands of the dragon dancers, plus the accompaniment of drums and music instruments, creating a strong festive atmosphere.

The fire dragon dance is an indispensable folk activity for people in Yujiabao to celebrate the New Year, which means to avoid evil and pray for good weather in the coming year. Dragon lanterns not only add to festive atmosphere, but also brings joy to people.
