BEIJING, Oct. 9 (Xinhua) -- Tourists to Ningbo have enjoyed a Sino-France cultural feast in the past week-long holiday as the 2018 Ningbo-Nice International Carnival held in the port city of east China's Zhejiang Province.

As an official event of 2018 EU-China Tourism Year, the carnival, opened on September 28 and concluded on October 3, attracted more than 150,000 citizens and tourists to experience the original European-flavor show embedded with characteristic Ningbo features, and was covered by hundreds of media from home and abroad.

By integrating Ningbo cultural elements with the original French style, the Ningbo-Nice Carnival presented unique Ningbo culture to all participants and global audience via media reports.

The Ningbo-Nice Carnival is a success in such a beautiful city with people's enthusiasm and high efficiency here, said Rudy Salles, vice mayor of Nice.

The carnival is the latest move of Ningbo to implement the China-proposed Belt and Road Initiative, and it becomes an important carrier for the city's further opening-up and building an international tourism and leisure destination.

With grand parade as theme activity, the event had Ningbo City Tourism Image Ambassador Contest, China-France Food Festival and City Light Show as supporting activities.

The French "Nice International Carnival" is one of the world's largest and most famous carnivals with a history of more than 700 years. It is included in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage. (Edited by Niu Huizhe, niuhuizhe@xinhua.org)
