For the Dragon Boat Festival, which fell on June 7 this year, Xi'an International Trade & Logistic Park (ITL Park) held a series of activities to improve the awareness of traditional Chinese culture while providing fun for its residents.

During the three-day holiday, students from the park gave several recitations on both contemporary articles and ancient Chinese poems, expressing their respect to the traditional Chinese festival. 

"I've learned a lot by taking part in the festive activities, including making glutinous rice dumplings and recitations," said a student named Dong Keyan, adding that the event has provided better insight into the festival and strengthened their patriotism.
