    Disney's Dragon Boat Race

    I suggest them to make good use of Disney's Pier. A Disney's Dragon Boat Race might attract quite a number of local as well as visitors to the Park.

    by the way, 19th June 2007 is Tuen Ng Festival or Dragon Boat Festival.

    Well, at least then somebody would be using it!

    That 19th is a public holiday? I noticed that it is a "Peak" ticket day for the park.

    I also understand cake is eaten. THAT is a cause for celebration!

    It looks like the HK Govt wasted taxpayer's money on a pier that no one uses. It was probably suppose to be used for Disney Cruise line I guess. A bit overexpansion from the previous Govt part. (Tung's govt). I think the only time the pier got used was when Disney promoted that Pirateland otherwise it hasn't been used at all. I think it would be better use of that part of taxpayer's money on the attractions in the park than the pier.

    yes 19th June 2007 is a public holiday for Dragon Boat Festival.

    According to the Chinese Lunar Calendar, next year's Dragon Boat Festival (or Tuen Ng Festival) would be on Sunday 8th June 2008. so Monday 9th June 2008, (the day following Dragon Boat Festival) would be a public holiday instead.

    Chinese eat moon cake for Mid-Autumn Festival but not for Dragon Boat Festival.

    Different kinds of Tsung Tzu (in mandarin) being served as specialty Food during the festive period of Tuen Ng or Dragon Boat Festival. Tsung Tzu, usually made with sweet rice or steamed rice wrapped in bamboo leaves. But there are many varieties or variations of Tsung Tzu with different fillings (e.g. Red Bean) nowadays.
