Program Description & Details

What do culture and tradition mean to you, your family and your community? In this program, students will ponder that question as they learn about the culture and traditions of our Ming Dynasty family home. Then they will discover the stories and folklore surrounding the 2000 year old Dragon Boat festival and its customs that continue to this day.

Many of the ancient practices surrounding the Dragon Boat Festival are to do with avoiding bad luck: the program ends with students creating their own good luck charm.

Land and Sea Combo: Did you know, the very first Dragon Boat race to take place outside Asia happened in Vancouver? Combine this program with our Dragon Boat Paddle program, run in partnership with Dragon Boat BC. PLEASE NOTE: DRAGON BOAT PADDLING IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED DUE TO COVID-19 PROTOCOLS.
