In the presence of both locals and tourists, the long-lost Guancheng River officially re-emerged, revealing a brand-new look after more than nine months of urban renewal and construction on Taiping Road, which now blends modern fashion with traditional culture.

The event included a parade, interactive activities, the lighting ceremony of Taiping Road, and a traditional hanfu dance performance.
