The Feast of the Drunken Dragon | by Eduardo Martins

One of Macau’s most unique and colourful cultural traditions is undoubtedly The Feast of the Drunken Dragon, which takes place every year on the eighth day of the fourth lunar month. Local fisherman and fishmongers gather for the parade and dance, pray for blessings and participate in the ‘longevity rice’ banquet.   CLOSER’s photographer Eduardo Martins braved the stifling heat and flying waves of alcohol to capture these great images.
