The closing and awards ceremony of the 15th China Wuqiao International Circus Festival (CWICF) was held at Cangzhou Gymnasium in Cangzhou, Hebei province on the evening of October 7.

There were 30 programs from over 20 countries at this year's event, making it a big carnival for world acrobats.

Chinese artists incorporated traditional culture into their performances which was considered the highlights of the festival. In Balancing on Ladder by Hebei Acrobatic Troupe, long sleeve Chinese opera was adopted into difficult acrobatics. Other programs like Monocycle, Head Balancing and Foot Juggling with Drums have combined traditional arts with acrobatic art.

The 15th CWICF, which lasted eight days, was organized by China's Ministry of Culture and Hebei Provincial Government.
