In every Mid-Autumn Festival, the residents of Lemin Town produce one dragon in east, south, west and north streets respectively. The dragon is made by bamboo as its bones, bound with banana leaf, and stuck with the bamboo tubes, which are filled with inflammable cotton. In the evening, after worship, hundreds of people dance in the street with the fire dragons, which can last three to four hours.
