During the opening performance, "strolling around the flower market", a Lingnan folk custom that was newly listed as a national intangible cultural heritage representative project this year, was combined with "rap" art, fully demonstrating the innovative integration of intangible cultural heritage and pop culture. A fashion show featuring Canton Embroidery was also held, which not only reflects the charm of both Lingnan's intangible cultural heritage but also the integration of traditional art and contemporary trends through fashionable techniques.
