A tourism festival featuring nearly 1,000 mu (66.67 hectares) of blooming peach blossoms was recently held in Daochang township, Huzhou's Wuxing district.
Apart from admiring peach blossoms, the festival saw visitors participate in activities related to the flowers such as painting fans made of peach wood, making peach blossom specimens and savoring cakes stuffed with the flowers.
Daochang township has been planting peaches for more than a century. The festival, which will run until the end of this month, comes as part of authorities' efforts to raise the profile of local peaches and facilitate the integrated development of the agriculture and tourism sectors.
