Champagne corks pop on party season

Li Qian                                              A variety of events are held in Jing鈥檃n during the city鈥檚
                                                     biggest tourism extravaganza in autumn. 鈥?Jiang Xiaowei
The annual Shanghai Tourism Festival
            is upon us and it鈥檚 a party time. A
            variety of events have been arranged
            for the city鈥檚 biggest tourism extrava-
ganza in September and October, including
food, light, music, sports and art events.

   Champagne corks popped as the annual
sparkling wine festival kicked off the pro-
ceedings on September 8 near Jing鈥檃n Park.
Nearly 300 Old World and New World wines
were displayed for free tasting.

   Star attractions included one of the world鈥檚
most important Cava producers, Freixenet,
and products by China鈥檚 star winery Do-
maine, Chandon China, in northwestern
China鈥檚 Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
Thousands of visitors turned out to toast the
delicious wines, all viewed by two St. Bernard
dogs, specially flown in from Sweden and set
in Jing鈥檃n Sculpture Park.

   Wine wasn鈥檛 the only thing on the menu.
Delicacies from all over the world are acces-
sible in the Zhangyuan Garden, which range
from French pastries to hearty Australian
steaks.

   Fancy a cup of coffee to chill out and relax?
In the Jing鈥檃n Kerry Center, renowned cafes
from chain stores to individual coffee shops
brew their special formulas and offer free
tasting to visitors.

   This autumn, every corner of Jing鈥檃n will
be giggling, as more than 50 top comedians
from 12 countries are performing, along-
side magicians and other entertainers, on
the roadside, in the parks, retail malls and
neighborhoods.

   But not only that, a popular rendezvous
among youngsters, Joy City, is offering big
discounts and several other DIY activities to
add to the fun and frolics.
