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.
