Various folk activities were held to celebrate Er Yue Er (Longtaitou Festival in Chinese) or Dragon Head Raising Day across China on Tuesday. People celebrated the day in various ways, such as performing a dragon dance and sailing a dragon boat. And a traditional haircut on this day was believed to help ward off bad luck.

People performed a dragon dance, took haircuts, painted dragon eyes and made colorful dragon steamed buns in Qinghuangdao, China's Hebei Province.

Hundreds of people from both China and Vietnam performed a dragon dance together in the border county of Longzhou in China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region.

People in Tianjin ate a traditional Chinese snack called Menzi to celebrate the day.

In Heilongjiang Province, activities to collect five kinds of cereal were held to pray for harvest in autumn.

Er Yue Er, which falls on the second day of the second month on the Chinese lunar calendar, is regarded by the Chinese people as the day when the "dragon raises its head," which means the spring awakens after winter hibernation.
