On September 23, the Yueyang County Farmers’ Harvest Festival and the Zhang Guying Village Autumn Cultural Tourism Festival kicked off. The events, focusing on autumn culture, consist of four chapters in the name of “shaiqiu (drying crops in autumn), autumn scene photography, autumn themed painting, and autumn gains banquet”. A series of farming culture and folk customs, with unique local and ethnic characteristics, were held to present the spirits of the new generation of farmers in the new era. This reflected Yueyang County’s achievements made in beautiful village construction, traditional culture inheritance, and economic and social development.
