Commemorating ancient patriot poet Qu Yuan

Children wearing traditional costumes join a ceremony to commemorate Qu Yuan at Wuhan East Lake Duanwu Cultural Festival in Wuhan, Hubei province on June 23. The Dragon Boat Festival, or the Duanwu Festival, is to commemorate the death of Qu Yuan, a patriot poet during the Warring States Period (475-221 BC), who committed suicide by flinging himself into the Miluo River after the capital of Chu, his mother kingdom, fell to the enemy.
