A 200-meter dragon lantern appeared in a village in East China's Jiangxi province to welcome the Lantern Festival, which falls on Feb 19 this year. 

With a history dating back to Tang Dynasty (618 to 907 AD), the dragon lantern dance was performed by more than 300 local farmers, each handling a stool as supports. It is believed the performance will bring good weather for crops.
