Five major activities, including a photography exhibition, a micro video contest, a cultural road show, Southern Silk Road Half Marathon, Southern Silk Road New Year Carnival and Ancient Alley Gourmet Festival, will be rolled out to showcase the development and charm of the ancient town.

As an important part of the festival, the Southern Silk Road Half Marathon will hit the road on Dec. 30, with the participation of nearly 3,000 runners.

The Southern Silk Road New Year Carnival will open on Dec. 31 with a grand gala offering great fun and excitement.
