Celebrating Dragon Boat Festival with a splash and loads of water fun
Shanghai Happy Valley and Playa Maya Water Park in suburban Songjiang District are celebrating the upcoming Dragon Boat Festival in a cool and fun way.
A special graduation ceremony for 100 graduates – some from university, some middle school students – was held at Playa Maya Water Park on Tuesday with cool sporting activities.
Students competed in a thrilling tug-of-war game and enjoyed the fun of water splashing as they prepared to start a new chapter in their life.
During the Dragon Boat Festival holiday, from Thursday to Saturday, band performances and dragon dances will be held at Shanghai Happy Valley. Visitors will also learn how to make zongzi (glutinous rice wrapped in bamboo or reed leaves with fillings), which is a festival delicacy.
Between July 8 and September 12, a summer electric music storm will lash the amusement park with a raft of music performances.
