Tomb-sweeping Day, or Qingming Festival, is the most important occasion for the Chinese to honor their ancestors.
In the central Chinese city of Kaifeng, an ancient capital of seven dynasties, a cultural festival is going on to mark the day.
About 2,000 local residents dressed up in costumes of China’s Song Dynasty went for a spring outing on Friday.
This is part of a ten-day China Qingming Cultural Festival in Kaifeng.
Organizers say Qingming Festival used to be and still remains a day to mourn the deceased, yet the festival could be more.
