Hainan’s Ding’an will hold a series of cultural activities to welcome this year’s Junpo Festival at the Wenbifeng Cultural Scenic Spot on May 3rd.


It is one of the biggest festivals in Hainan to worship the national heroine Madam Xian (513-603) who actively promoted the communication of Hainan Island with the mainland during her life.


The cultural activities, including a lion dancing & singing, stunning Chuanzhang shows, a Qiong (Hainan) Opera performance and a large offering of sacrifices by locals to worship their ancestors, will be put on to fascinate the public.


Chuanzhang, a ritual act of piercing a steel rod through the performer's cheek without bleeding or scars, highlights the folk festival to commemorate their beloved folk national female hero.
