-------------Novel coronavirus pneumonia prevention and control was fought in Guizhou, Qiandongnan, Zhenyuan, Qiannan, Buyei and Miao Autonomous Prefecture, Huishui, Tongren, and Qiannan, and other dragon boat races with strong dragon boat racing were held for dragon boat races. At the same time, some traditional ceremonies of dragon boat activities are preserved, and some small-scale alternative activities are favored by the masses.
Dragon Boat Race in China has a history of thousands of years, with a broad mass base. Since the outbreak of novel coronavirus pneumonia, the epidemic situation in Guizhou province has been controlled very early.
"Zhenyuan has been famous for Dragon Boat Racing since the Ming and Qing Dynasties. The number of people watching the dragon boat race every year is more than 100000." Zhang Guoquan, vice president of Zhenyuan County Dragon Boat Association, introduced that in order to strictly implement the requirements of epidemic prevention and control and prevent large-scale crowd gathering brought by dragon boat racing, Zhenyuan County government suspended this year's dragon boat racing and related activities, only kept the "dragon sacrifice" ceremony, and limited the number of people to 30-40.
Like Zhenyuan County, Bijiang district has a long tradition of dragon boat racing, with hundreds of dragon boat teams at most. "One month before the Dragon Boat Festival every year, the local people begin to prepare for war. By the end of the Dragon Boat Festival, there were a lot of people watching. " Wang Yuxue, deputy director of Bijiang District Bureau of culture, sports, radio, film, television and tourism, said that it was because dragon boat racing attracted a large number of people that the district government decided to cancel this year. "After all, epidemic prevention and control is a major event, and the people all expressed their understanding and support."
"We also suspended the dragon boat race, and only three dragon boats were allowed to perform the" launching "performance, so as to complete the custom that the dragon boat must be launched in the local Dragon Boat Festival every year." Huishui county is responsible for organizing Luo Jianhua's introduction of folk dragon boat races. Every year, the dragon boat races in Huishui County attract more than 100000 people to watch, so it's reasonable to cancel them in order to prevent and control the epidemic.
Despite the cancellation of dragon boat racing, small-scale community activities held in some places, such as zongzi making and paper dragon making, are still favored by the masses.
There are more than 5000 relocated people in Jishan community of Yidi poverty alleviation relocation and resettlement site in western new town of Yuqing County, Guizhou Province. In the small-scale "interesting dragon boat" and other cultural and sports activities held one day in advance in the community, many people take the initiative to participate and harvest joy. "The community activities are rich and interesting," said Yi Huali, the relocated masses. "Let's meet new neighbors, make new friends and adapt to the new environment in the process of playing."
"To let the relocated people pack zongzi and play games together will not only promote the traditional culture of the Chinese nation, but also promote the harmony of the community and neighborhood." Said Liang Caiping, deputy director of the community.
