So this issue of the old yellow calendar takes you to know how Gu Yu sacrificed to the sea and what activities to do.
what should Gu Yu do to sacrifice to the sea? Clean the temple, courtyard, theater and so on. On Gu Yu day, fishermen dressed in festival costumes flocked from all directions to the Dragon King Temple, the goddess of the sea temple, the seaside or streets to celebrate the festival. According to the memory of Xu Yuanzhi, an old man who once worked as a Taoist in Tianhou palace in Shidao, Rongcheng City (from Xiaochi village, Yatou, Rongcheng City), on this day of the festival, the temple, courtyard, theater and other places in Tianhou palace in Shidao must be cleaned early in the morning, and tin honor guards such as "mace, melon, Tomahawk, axe facing the stirrup" in Tianhou palace must be removed, and the silk covers usually worn are removed and polished. Then he arranged the curtains and plaques in the temple neatly.

After killing the pigs, a wisp of black hair must be left above the pig's head, which represents the meaning of the whole pig. When sacrificing the sea, inflate the killed pig, then tie the pig to a small table, and put red silk and big red flowers on the pig's head. In addition, the chicken must choose the bigger one first, and the fish must choose the bass to show good luck.
on the day of worshiping the Sea Dragon King, some people also went to the beach to burn paper and incense, set off firecrackers and worship the sea dragon king. In Rongcheng Stone Island, li island and other large docks, festival activities are not only large-scale, but also long-lasting. In addition to temple activities, streets and alleys are crowded with people walking on stilts, dancing dragons and playing lions. The atmosphere is even more lively than the new year. The climax of the worship ceremony is at night. At night, all Haikou lights are bright. Local businesses and fishing houses organized to raise funds from all walks of life and held a grand "sea lantern" ceremony. The scale of the ceremony is similar to the Yulan basin festival of Buddhism.
