Local people made "zongzi", hung artemisiae argyi and raced dragon boat to celebrate the traditional Chinese dragon boat festival. The festival, which falls on Monday, arises from the legend of Qu Yuan, a romantic poet and minister to the king of Chu who drowned himself after he was forced into exile. (Xinhua/Zheng Jiayu)
