Lantern shows held in celebration of Chinese New Year

Tai’erzhuang in east China’s Shandong Province has decorated the ancient town with tens of thousands of lanterns and lights. This, plus the landscape lights and color lanterns, has created a strong festive atmosphere.

In east China’s Nanjing, 234 sets of glowing lanterns lit up the skyline of the city. The city received 250,000 passengers on the second day of the Chinese New Year, which has not reached peak.

Tourists flocked into streets of the ancient city and viewed historical sites, such as Fuzimiao, or the Confucius Temple. Head of the police station in Fuzimiao scenic area said they will increase the security forces to maintain law and order.

In Bizhou Village in east China’s Fujian Province, villagers lit up lanterns, which were passed on from Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279) . Unlike lanterns in other places, some 1,100 lantern sculptures were carried out by villagers forming a long queue. Villagers walked through the alleys in the village to pray for good weathers for good harvest, and wish the country flourishes and people live in peace.

“I think the lanterns are beautiful. This is a way of inheriting and passing on the folk culture,” said a tourist.
