Seeing Greater-Heat Boat off
Text Size:A A A 2015-10-25

The folk event of “Seeing Greater-Heat Boat off” was held in all the fishing villages around the Taizhou Bay to pray for peace. It is said that in the 1920s, Jiazhi boasted its greatest event of “Seeing Greater-Heat Boat off” around the Taizhou Bay. During the period around Greater Heat in the lunar year (It means the hottest time within one year), Jiazhi officially launched the Yuxiu Festival synchronized with the folk event of “Seeing Greater-Heat Boat off”. From Less Heat to Greater Heat in the lunar year, numerous people from Wenling, Huangyan and Yuhuan flocked to the Wusheng Temple fair under sweltering summer and enthusiastically took part in folk activities. The fair lasted for half a month, and it was visited by hundreds of thousands of people in total. The fair culminated on the day of Greater Heat, with the event of “Seeing Greater-Heat Boat off” accompanied by colorful folk art performances. On that day, a huge procession solemnly sent a paper-made Greater-Heat Boat, about a third the size of a real fishing boat, to the river bank and saw it off.
