The Guangdong Dragon Boat Festival has become an international
event that has been taking place each year since 1995 and draws
dragon boats from all over China, the US, Canada, Australia, and
Singapore. Nowadays the dragon boat is much smaller and faster than
its predecessor which was said to be over 98 feet (30 m) long and
over 6 foot (2 m) high. The festival takes places each year on the
fifth day of the fifth lunar month.
