The Feast of the Drunken Dragon is a unique folk festival, celebrated by fishmongers and fishing folk in Macao: it was inscribed respectively in the Macao Intangible Cultural Heritage List and the National Intangible Cultural Heritage List. The centrepiece of the celebrations is The Drunken Dragon and Lion Dance Parade, which starts at Senado Square. The parade is one of Macao's most distinctive cultural traditions, featuring men performing the Drunken Dragon dance while consuming wine and carrying a wooden dragon head and tail. Other highlights of the festival include evening folk performances at Kuan Tai Temple, and the distribution of "longevity rice".
