A raft of art performances to present Southern Fujian's intangible cultural heritages were carried out in Huli district of Xiamen, East China's Fujian province, June 22, local media reported.

The show featured distinctive Southern Fujian traditional culture, including nanyin, one of the country's oldest musical styles, and Gezai opera, a representative opera in Taiwan.

Other games, such as bamboo pole dances, hopscotch and walking on stilts were also popular among parents and children.

A sideline exhibition also attracted many passersby who stopped to appreciate the charms of Huli's profound culture and historical presence.

The two-day event was jointly sponsored by local authorities and Xiamen Daily office to offer a visual feast to visitors and local residents.
