Participants witnessed the changes and diversity of the city.

This is not only a city sports carnival, but also a cultural journey.

There will be a gathering of star food from the Bay Area, Foshan's non-heritage handicraft experience, fashionable cultural performances and various themed exhibitions, allowing the general public and hiking enthusiasts to experience the charms of Foshan, the city of Lingnan humanities.
