Happy and Peaceful Show with Rich and Colorful Content

The site was extremely exciting and bustling that night, with gorgeous stage and eye-catching background creating an exquisite performance environment. The content of the show was also rich, and the applause never stopped. When one of the ten greatest songs of BIHE “Happy Forever” and the theme song of Yanqing “Beijing Gallery” started to play, audience could not help but sing along. The magic show was the climax of the entire show, and everyone in the audience was focused and amazed and burst into applause many times.

Villager Offers “Winter Melon King” to BIHE Construction Workers 

One of the audience members was special: he is 80-year-old relocated villager Liu Jianzhong. This elderly man offered a “Winter Melon King” weighing over 20 kg that he planted to thank the workers for their contribution to the exhibition and the development of Yanqing. This most simple gesture and this original fruit represented the sincere emotion of the villager and the best reward for the workers’ hard work in Yanqing and the exhibition park.

“We left the village where our ancestors lived, but seeing that our village has become a large garden visited by tourists from around the world in just two years, and it’s all worth the price! Being a construction worker is not easy. Today we offer them the biggest winter melon we planted in our village and thank them for their contribution to our hometown.” Liu said.

 

Ten Workers Celebrate Their Birthday among Continuous Climax

It is worth mentioning that the hosts of the event planned a part where construction workers can celebrate their birthday together. Among other people singing the birthday song, these ten workers cut their birthday cake and received the best wishes, which was the climax of the event.

The park’s Chief Engineer Zhou Weiguang felt excited and said: “This show is great. Construction workers face difficult condition, and life in the park during construction is relatively banal. We thank the Beijing International Horticultural Exposition Coordination Bureau and the Yanqing District Government for this show and the birthday celebration. We are both happy and moved!”

“We are moved to see all our worker friends so happy. We thank them for their contribution to Yanqing, and we are looking forward to the 2019 Beijing International Horticultural Exposition!” One of the performers on the show said.
