"The handwritten Spring Festival couplets are great and have really put me in the holiday spirit," said a local, "it's too good to simply hang on the wall. I'm thinking about framing it and treating it as a collectable."
Moreover, several Zhenping artists staged special folk performances at Wenhua Square, winning praise from the public. The performances were themed around poverty relief, the construction of a new Zhenping county and Nanyang's development.
