The 4th Qingyundian Spring Festival goods fair kicked off at Dongxintun village in Qingyundian township, Daxing district of Beijing on January 7, 2017. In addition to various goods like handicraft products, this year the fair featured a lot of wonderful performances and activities, such as the performances of old Beijing peddlers’ shouts and Yangge (a popular rural folk dance), the ice and snow carnival, as well as writing and sending fu (blessings) characters and Spring Festival couplets to visitors by calligraphy lovers and talents on the site.

At the fair, visitors lined up to receive fu characters and Spring Festival couplets. “The fu character and Spring Festival couplet are written so well! I will paste them on my door for Spring Festival,” uncle Zhang, who received a fu character and a pair of Spring Festival couplet, said excitedly and then went on visiting the fair.

“The fair have so rich and abundant Spring Festival goods that I can prepare well for the upcoming Spring Festival,” aunt Wang, who came from Huangcun township of Daxing district early in the morning with a small shopping cart, smiled.

Additionally, while shopping at the fair, visitors can also freely play childhood games like throwing sandbags, rolling hoops, and skipping ropes, enjoy authentic “Laoniang” handmade noodles, as well as praying for the new year by receiving a piece of red cloth at the reception desk, writing wishes of the new Year on the cloth, and then hanging it up on a blessing tree.
