By the boathouse in Central Park, a Buddhist Monk performed the Traditional Awakening Blessing of the Dragon Boats for the 2014 Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival in New York. Two boats were on display. The monk blessed the boat with water and incense and then dabbed some red paint on the eyes of the dragon head to awaken it. The blessing ensures prosperity and good fortune to the area, in the Chinese year of the Horse. P7170009P7170009 P7170006P7170006 P7170022P7170022 P7170034P7170034 P7170050P7170050 P7170064P7170064
