To welcome the upcoming Spring Festival, a cultural event showcasing local intangible cultural heritage and Chinese folk customs was held at the Daoxiang Lake tourism resort in Beijing's Haidian district on Jan 17.

Performances featuring bamboo-made horses, lion dance, yangko dance and other cultural activities drew over 500 visitors. New Year couplets and authentic snacks such as bingtanghulu (sugar-coated hawthorns), lyudagunr (glutinous rice rolls with sweet bean flour) and sugar painting were also on hand.

Representatives from several primary schools and middle schools in the district also came to display their handicrafts, including stone painting works and miniature monkeys made of dried cicadas and magnolia bulbs.

The district's culture and tourism bureau will hold more than 250 such cultural events in the next two months, which are estimated to attract 1.5 million participants.
