Horse Races 赛马会

18 June 2018 in Zhongdian

The historic horse racing festival in Zhongdian has now sadly moved to a purpose-built stadium at the outskirts of town. In some years however, the event is still held, tightly controlled, on the Zhongdian grasslands.

The races generally last three days, with only the first day attended by many, even though the more interesting events, like shooting and picking up the hada, are held on the last day, when the leadership is safe and sound.

Festival held according to lunar calendar on 农历5月初5.
