Share with other Parents or Go Back

Celebrate the Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Dumpling Festival with a feast of wrapped rice dumplings this year!

According to legends, long long ago, a loyal Chinese official threw himself into the river when the Chu capital was captured by Qin. The local fishermen who raced out in their boats to save him were too late. So, in the hopes that his body will not be consumed by the man-eating fish, they threw in cooked rice wrapped in leaves. This event brought about the Dragon Boat Festival and the eating of dumplings during the festival.

While we can’t really beat our oars in a race, we can at least celebrate by indulging ourselves in delicious rice dumplings! Here are some of the best places you can get them at!
