Exploding firecrackers are all part of the fun this weekend as the Dragon Boat Festival or Duānwǔ Jié (端午节) gets underway on lakes, rivers and seas all over Asia. People in China get to enjoy a three-day weekend, as well.
This great shot comes to us courtesy of Danise on Flickr who captured the flying red paper and miniature explosions at the build up to a 2007 dragon boat race so perfectly my ears are ringing just looking at it!
