A promotional vlog focuses on the lantern show.

With colorful lanterns of various shapes lit up and lantern boats cruising on the waters of Qushui Garden in Qingpu District, the throng erupted in yells of joy.

Rail failed to dampen the festive spirit and enthusiasm of residents and tourists who had gathered at one of the city's five traditional gardens to enjoy the lantern show.

The dazzling lantern show, staged for the first time in the Jiangnan (the lower part of the Yangtze River)-style park and nearby Qiaoziwan Square, features dragon, lotus, and boat-shaped lanterns to celebrate the Year of the Dragon.

Visitors take part in a night tour of Qushui Garden.

Folk custom activities such as Huju and Yueju opera, a dragon dance procession, and a Jiangzhou drum performance will complement the lantern show – a feast for the eyes and ears.

The focus will be on the two Spring Festival fairs. Several of the pieces on show were created using intangible cultural heritage techniques, like as Jingdezhen ceramics and wood carving.
