Huge flash mob held to mark China-U.S. Tourism Year

By China Daily

The Ellipse lawn in front of the White House turned into a “blooming garden” on Labor Day as a massive “flash mob” of nearly 1,000 in colorful costumes gathered to celebrate the 2016 China–US Tourism Year. “This event is an interesting and symbolic part of the celebrations of the Tourism Year, which was first announced by President Xi and President Obama last year,” said Li Kexin, minister of the Chinese embassy in Washington. The “Super Flash Mob” celebration ceremony was initiated by the China National Tourist Office in New York with assistance from the China America Friendship Association. The event was geared toward increasing American awareness of Chinese culture and to serve as a platform for people-to-people exchange, said Pan Xiaopeng, deputy director of the tourist office. Pan said the event also was supported by the US Department of Commerce, the mayor’s office in Washington and the US National Park Service.
