Fearless: Climbing cleaver ladder to celebrate Lantern Festival

Folk artists in north China’s Hebei Province on Monday entertained revelers by performing an uncommon stunt — climbing a ladder of cleavers.

It’s part of celebrations for Lantern Festival in Xitai Village, Handan City.

Lantern Festival, which falls on Monday this year, is celebrated on the 15th day of the first Chinese lunar month, and traditionally marks the end of Spring Festival, or Chinese New Year, China’s most important festival.
