People carry a flower dragon paper boat in the parade during Nian Li, and burn it after all the celebrations at the end of the day, hoping to expel plague, get rid of demon and praying for peace, prosperity, good weather and good life.

Many white paper flowers are pasted on the boat, because villagers want to get these flowers during the parade, which carries the meaning of begetting sons. [Photo: Maoming Daily/Huang Xintao]

Liu has to deliver two boats in one day. The smaller one will be sent to Chetouyuan Village, Baoguang Community, over 10 kilometers away from Liu’s house. The bigger one will be shipped to Wangjiudi Village in Hetang Town. Both villages celebrate Nian Li on the same day. [Photo: Maoming Daily/Huang Xintao]
