Hangzhou Festivals

Tidal Bore-watching Festival by the Qiantang River
When the tide approaches, it resembles a white rainbow rising from the plains, but when it surges it takes on the force “of 10,000 galloping horses”. The tidal bore watching festival, held once a year in neighboring Yanguan Town, Haining City on August 17 to 19, is a celebration of the great river. The festival opens with songs and dances are performed, followed by spectacular aquatic performances: motorboat acrobatics and motorcycles on water. Not to be missed.
