Outdoor yoga event and tai chi events on the landmark Zigzag Bridge are also on the agenda.
A Dragon Boat Festival temple fair will be held during the festival on June 14 with webcasts and activities to promote the 24 solar terms are also part of the plan.
A number of posters combining qipao, classic scenery of the scenic area such as the Zigzag Bridge and Beaufort Terrace, a cultural landmark, and the seventh solar term lixia, or Summer Begins, are on displayed.
Businesses in the scenic area are hosting various promotions for the Double Five Shopping Festival.
