Winter Culture Festival Opens in Xinjiang

A winter culture festival opened in Zhaotong, in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region in northwest China, earlier this month to celebrate the winter season and fish harvest. Despite of the cold weather, the festival has already attracted many tourists with its celebrations, traditional games and other cultural activities. The Winter Culture Festival kicked off with the annual Winter Fishing Festival, where 30,000 tourists watched as fishermen netted fish, the first of which came in at 40 pounds and was auctioned for 298 thousand yuan (USD$50,000). Winter fishing is a tradition in Ulungur Lake in Xinjiang. The Winter Culture Festival will continue in Xinjiang through March.
