Temple Fairs (Part 1)

The temple fair mainly displays Beijing's local customs. The Spring Festival temple fairs in Beijing are always bustling with peddlers from all over the city selling a variety of snacks, goods, toys and candies, in addition to theatrical performances. An old saying goes:"At the temple fair, girls want flowers, boys prefer firecrackers, old ladies like cotton padded shoes, and old men want new felt hats". The temple fair is jam packed with people coming and going all the time, full of the jubilant festival atmosphere.
