Tai Hang dragon dance marks colourful start to Chinese holiday

Thousands of people thronged in Tai Hang to watch the area's heritage-listed dragon dance, kicking off the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day celebrations. Paraded along the narrow streets by 300 dancing Tai Hang residents, the 61-metre fire dragon swung its head and tail to the cheering of crowds.
