On June 23rd, the Yakou Piaose Parade and Food Carnival was held in Zhongshan, Guangdong Province. The event, which spans three days, showcases the Yakou Piaose Intangible Cultural Heritage, a vibrant food market, and the Rice Dream China Chic Market, highlighting the rich cultural heritage, local cuisine, and coastal scenery.

Piaose is an ancient folk-art form that combines elements of drama, magic, acrobatics, music, and dance. It originated in the late Ming and early Qing dynasties in Guangdong, China. Today, it remains an important art form in the southern region of China. Piao refers to floating or soaring, showcasing the beauty of aerial movements, while se (originally meaning decoration) refers to the elaborate and clever disguises used. In the context of Piaose, a group of people push a beautifully decorated"colorful board" with fixed and arranged character figures in artistic poses.

Yakou Piaose Parade originated from the Tang Dynasty's"Shuapusa (Buddha-playing)" ritual customs and has a history of over300 years, dating back to the Qianlong era of the Qing Dynasty. In2008, it was included in the national intangible cultural heritage list. This year's Yakou Piaose Parade kicked off on June23rd with the sound of gongs.
