Paddy Harvest Festival at Haitang Bay Paddy Field Park April 18
In Hainan, the Chinese lunar month of March is usually the first rice harvest period of the year. In celebration of the annual harvest season, a paddy rice harvest festival will be held at Sanya Haitang Bay Paddy Field Park on April 18th, 2018.
The festival will begin at 9:30 a.m., with a traditional folk dance called the “Bull Head Dance,” and an ancient event that involves prayers for a rich rice harvest.
In ancient times, people harvested rice with simple hand tools like sickles and knives. It was hard labor accompanied by the joy of expectations for a bountiful harvest.
To help more people learn about rice harvest culture, this year the festival will feature a rice harvesting activity. The event is an exciting chance for local residents and tourists alike to visit the countryside to explore how rice is grown and harvested, and to build their emotional connections with nature.
At the park, the bright yellow stalks of rice get so loaded that they bow low as they blow in the fields. When visitors look around, they see vast expanses of golden fields.
Come visit the Sanya Haitang Bay park during the Sanya Paddy Harvest Festival, and experience the harvest for yourself!
