To celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival, Dasheng Town of Yubei District conducted the rural cultural activity themed “Our Festival · Dragon Boat Festival” for the holiday. At the event, villagers made zongzi (traditional Chinese rice-pudding) together, inherited family instructions, and invited friends and relatives in the city to return to their homeland with a new look and join them at this party.
On June 26, the reporter came to Liaojiawan, an old village in Tianxiandong Village, Dasheng Town, and saw that willows were bowing near the blue water, old farmhouses with white walls and black bricks were reflected in the pond, and Galsang flowers were blooming. After the renovation of the rural living environment, this village has taken on an entirely new look like a heavenly place.
Liao Fangying, deputy secretary of Tianxiandong Village, told the reporter that after the renovation of the rural living environment, the original ratty farmhouses in Liaojiawan had been completely transformed, the polluted pond has been harnessed and dredged. The mountain spring has been introduced, thus creating the scenery like that in regions south of the Yangtze River.
In this year’s Dragon Boat Festival, dozens of villagers planned to celebrate together. Unexpectedly, more than 200 people showed up. It turned out that those who have gone to the city to work for many years came back after hearing the news, and some of them are planning to use the renovated houses to open home inns or homestays for travelers.
At the activity, villagers made zongzi and ate local dishes, and told the family instructions to more relatives. They also sent zongzi and other gifts to people in straitened circumstances, such as the aged enjoying the five guarantees and the disabled, to show the love and concern of the villagers and the government.
In the New Longren Village, more than a dozen villagers also gathered to eat zongzi and taste vegetables to feel the luxuriant and prosperous growth of all things in summer and to celebrate the traditional Dragon Boat Festival together.
