A fair to display and sell local agricultural specialties was held in Changle Township in Haimen district on Nov 17. Themed "Harvest Haimen, Tasty Changle", the event attracted thousands of citizens from the surrounding areas.
Twenty-three dazzlingly decorated floats slowly paraded around the to-be-harvested rice fields. Several singing and dancing performances with local characteristics were presented on a stage set up in the golden rice field and received rounds of applause.
A dozen booths were distributed at the two sides of the stage. More than 60 agricultural specialties from 11 sub-districts and townships as well as an institute of agricultural science were displayed and available for purchase, including taros, red beans, kiwi fruits, organic rice and aquatic products.
Essential oil and hand-made soaps from Haiyong Township were especially popular with the ladies. And the muskmelons from the Haimen institute of agricultural science sold out in two hours.
