The dragon boat festival falls on the 25th of the fifth lunar month(it is often in July or late June). Different from Han Chinese Dragon Boat festival, Miao Dragon festival  focuses on  praying for plenty rain for rice fields and other crops. Before the boat race starts, the local boatmen drive their dragon boats(made of a single timber) to visit their relatives of villages on both sides of Qingshuijiang river. Their relatives already prepared 'gifts'(ducks, geeses, pigs, even a young bull) before the boats arrive, and wait for their arrival. These are not just simple gifts, they also symbolize good lucks.
