Floral and lighting decorations at Tian’anmen Square in the heart of Beijing have been completed ahead of celebrations for the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII.
Two Great Wall-shaped floral decorations have been established on the Tian’anmen Square, where a military parade involving both Chinese and foreign troops will be staged next week.
Smaller-scale floral decorations have been put in place along the Chang’an Avenue, a major thoroughfare through Beijing.
The decorations will remain on show for a month following the parade and last until the National Day on Oct. 1.
China has a series of events planned in the run-up to the 70th anniversary of the end of WWII, culminating in a military parade on Sept. 3 in Beijing.
