Fall in Shouguang-National Day

In the fall season there is a holiday period called “golden week” that starts on October 1st, which is National Day. A Chinese parallel, in some ways, to Independence Day (July 4th) in the USA.

At the community where my son lived they had a nice celebration of National Day in the evening with food and a show in an outdoor area in the middle of the complex, it included  performances by dance and martial arts schools, poetry reading, and performances by individuals and small groups, ranging from very modern to traditional.
