This activity consisted of two parts: culture experience and art show. Colored lanterns, tea art, calligraphy and paper cutting in the culture experience part attracted lots of local people. The panda doll from afar also attracted numerous fans. Children particularly liked the charmingly naive panda and played and took photos with it one after another. The experience activity was originally planned for 400 people, but not long after the activity began, over 600 enthusiastic participants flocked into the scene. All experience areas were packed.
