When Yuan heard his home had been invaded, he drowned himself in the river. Fishermen raced to save him, but couldn’t. To prevent his body from being eaten, they threw rice dumplings into the water as an offering to his spirit. Today, rice dumplings are eaten during this festival of dance, martial arts, street theater and racing. Also 8.5.
