Temple Fairs!

As a type of Chinese fairs, temple fairs are closely related to the religious activities held in temples. Fairs are usually held at festivals or on specified days in or near a temple, hence the name. Now most temple fairs in Beijing are organized around the Spring Festival, with eating, drinking and enjoying as the main contents, to add festive atmosphere to the Chinese lunar New Year.
