The festival has its roots in ancient Chinese history. Qu Yuan, China’s first great poet, lived at a time when various parts of China were at war with each other. Qu Yuan tried to provide advice to help his government. But, as legend has it, the king did not appreciate his advice, and with evil men twisting his words and making his situation worse, Qu Yuan was exiled from his homeland. When his homeland fell into enemy hands, his despair grew so deep that he threw himself into the Miluo River (in today’s Hunan province of China). This is the point at which the dragon boats enter the story. According to the ancient legend, the villagers, who loved Qu Yuan, ran to their dragon boats and raced to save him. But, unfortunately, they were too late. Annual dragon boat races in China came to commemorate this valiant rescue attempt. The races were part of the Dragon Boat Festival, celebrated annually on the fifth day of the fifth lunar month of the year. This rich part of Chinese culture has been shared globally, and today dragon boat races are held in many cities around the world, including Evansville, Indiana.
