Fancy Flash with “Passionate Virtuosity by the Yellow River” was held on December 19th. Seven top “freestyle football” players from home showed off their expertise in some famous cultural relic attractions in Lanzhou City, including the Zhongshan Bridge, Yellow River Tower and Longyuan.
At 15:00 that day, gay music was played on the Zhongshan Bridge South Plaza, where the seven freestyle football players, including Meng Yang and Chen Yaguang, came on the stage one after another to show their consummate juggling skill to the spectators, making the Lanzhou citizens feel the charm of football at short distance, winning shouts of applause from them. Fitness enthusiasts from Lanzhou gave wonderful Tai Chi performances that day, injecting athletic passion and vitality into the winter landscape of the Yellow River.
In recent years, Lanzhou City has been stepping up its efforts to construct sports facilities on the banks of the Yellow River, making it possible to carry out civil physical fitness activities on a regular basis, and tell the “story of the Yellow River” vividly with sports as the carrier. A growing number of people are joining the body builders on both banks of the Yellow River, while there are 1.48 million citizens throughout the city who take physical exercises frequently, accounting for 38% of the total population, increasingly enhancing the urban vitality. The hundred-mile Yellow River Scenery Line is the longest riverside ecological landscape belt in China. With the Zhongshan Bridge as the central axis and the landscape on both banks of the Yellow River as highlights, the superlatively crafted riverside scenery, which lies against the mountains, is honored as “Lanzhou Bund” by tourists from all over the world. This year’s Fancy Flash with “Passionate Virtuosity by the Yellow River” will be held in the Zhongshan Bridge, Yellow River Tower and Longyuan, which are located in the Yellow River Scenery Line Scenic Area. An athletic passion will be aroused on the site to build a gold-lettered signboard for the city featuring “beautiful landscape by the Yellow River”, so as to enhance the visibility and reputation of Lanzhou.
