The Dragon Boat Festival
The origin of this festival centers around a scholarly government official named Qu Yuan，and he is also a great poet.
He was a patriotic and respected man, but because of the misdeeds of jealous rivals he eventually fell into disfavor in the emperor's court.
Unable to regain the respect of the emperor, watching his country falling into enemies, Qu Yuan threw himself into the Mi Low river and killed himself.
The local people living adjacent to the Mi Lo River rushed into their boats to search for him while throwing rice into the waters to appease the river dragons.
Although they were unable to find Qu Yuan, their efforts are still celebrated today.
