The 3rd Nanning Bamboo and Lotus Culture Festival was recently launched in Shishan Park. As of July 4 during the culture festival, there are rich cultural activities such as lotus variety exhibition, theme photography exhibition, and Chinese traditional operas presented in the park.
During the opening day, actors from Nanning Ethnic Arts and Culture Research Institute performed some “red classic plays” and traditional Cantonese opera plays at Qingfeng Square and Bamboo Shadow Bridge South Square of Shishan Park, creating a scene of “opera in the garden” and “garden in the opera”, which not only allowed citizens and tourists to have a closer look at the intangible cultural heritage, but also endowed the garden landscape with a cultural soul. During the festival, more than 50 varieties of lotuses are on display in the West Gate, North Gate and Qingfeng Square. There are also many varieties of lotuses competing to bloom in the lotus pond, allowing the public to enjoy the beauty of lotuses in different poses in a “one-stop” way.
