The annual Chinese traditional holiday "Qixi Festival" is coming up. Huangpu district officials announced on August 5 that the district's 7th Qiqiao Festival is due to open on the morning of August 11 and will run through September 10. Visitors will be able to not only watch Qiqiao skill contests among "Deft Sisters" at the ancestral halls, but also try hand at Qiqiao under the guidance of "Deft Sisters".

Dubbed "the Guangdong provincial capital for Qiqiao culture", Huangpu District has a long-standing Qiqiao culture, which is a branch of the profound Guangfu culture. Although the opening ceremony will not be held until this weekend, events of the 7th Qiqiao Festival have been ongoing since July 25. A number of Qiqiao works from the district have earned the highest overall score at the Guangzhou "China Wind" Greater China Region Qiqiao Festival Competition.
