    The University of Scranton’s Department of World Languages and Cultures invites you to join us in celebrating the Dragon Boat Festival Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m. The event will be hosted by visiting lecturer of Chinese Hsiang-Ling (Charlize) Wang via Zoom.

    The Dragon Boat Festival is an annual tradition in China that is normally celebrated the fifth day of the month of the traditional Chinese calendar. The festival is a celebration to commemorate the life and death of Qu Yuan, a famous Chinese scholar. There are various traditions associated with the Dragon Boat festival including eating rice dumplings, making an egg stand at noon, and—of course—racing dragon boats!
