Photo Friday: The Dragon Boat Festival

The Dragon Boat Festival, a national holiday in China, is set to be held this weekend throughout the country! For the Chinese, this day means no work or school, eating rice dumplings and watching thousands of people race intricately designed dragon boats on the nearest body of water.

Below, see a few photos from the big event!
