These literati left behind many works of art as well as footprints, which in turn provide a profound culture flavor to enhance Xixi National Wetland Park.

According to the historical records, dragon boat customs can be traced back to the Tang Dynasty, when the Xixi wetlands were often devastated by summer floods. To ward of the disasters, people began to pray to the Dragon King, a god believed to control waterways, asking him to bless them with fine weather and good harvests. The people of Xixi have since raced dragon boats to commemorate the event, competitions that have grown in popularity. Emperor Qianlong in the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), was attracted by the lively and grand wetlands celebration, conferring on it the noble title of "Dragon Boat Festival".

Xixi's dragon boats have a distince style and ornamentation, which together with the worship ceremony, from an important part of the area's folk culture. From the first day of May on the traditional Chinese calendar, Xixi locals begin invoking the Dragon King and expressing their heartfelt thanks to him.
