The Traditional Folk Customs - “"Water Wedding"


Recently, a traditional water wedding ceremony was held in Jiangshu Village, Qianqing Neighborhood. Several boats with the scarlet letter "Happiness" passed by the river, on which were sedan chairs, dowry and other items. The "bridegroom and bride" went ashore happily. It is said that this is a series of folk activities held by Qianqing Neighborhood. In addition, there are dragon boat races, Han costume shows, etc., which are aimed at inheriting folk customs and letting more people know about the folk culture of the water town.
