Spring Festival, the Chinese Lunar New Year, falls on Feb 5 this year. A series of activities will be held in Jinan, the capital of East China's Shandong province, to celebrate the upcoming festival, the most important festival for Chinese people.
1. Jinan Fantawild Oriental Heritage
Jinan Fantawild Oriental Heritage is to hold its fifth lantern show, illuminating the cold nights with warm, colorful lights during the festive season.
The shining groups of lanterns on display, handmade by craftsmen from Zigong city – "the hometown of lantern art" – are different from traditional Chinese lanterns as the craftsmen have made breakthroughs by combining light with sound to provide better displays.
In keeping with Chinese traditions and in celebration of the upcoming Chinese New Year, there will also be activities, including a food carnival and folk performances, prepared for guests in daytime at the site.
