The 4th Chongqing Beer Carnival will kick off on August 27th, bringing three days of thirst quenching fun to the city. Activities are hosted at two separate venues – the main venue is set up at the City Workers Cultural Palace and another is at Riyueguang Plaza in Jiaochangkou. Admission is free to the public this year and everyone is invited to come enjoy great deals on quality beer while at the same time feeling the thrill and excitement of a carnival.
The beer festival is held every two years in Chongqing and has been successfully held three times so far. A number of exciting festival events will kick off every night from August 27th to the 29th at 20:00. The opening ceremony for the beer festival is to be held on the night of August 27th and the organizers have invited the former Hua’er Band lead singer Da Zhangwei and the overall winner of the CCTV talent show “Xingguang Dadao (Starlit Boulevard)” Jin Meier to perform this year. There will also be laser dances performed on stage for the first time in Chongqing and a fans' rendition of Michael Jackson classics and signature dance moves will also be a treat as well.
The theme of this year's celebration is “Passionate Celebration and Drinkfest” and to better display the “passion and festiveness” of events, the organizing committee have decided to change the name of the festival to “Chongqing Beer Carnival” (from Chongqing Beer Festival), starting from this year onwards.
Aside from the new name change, another great thing about this year's festival is that they have done away with admission fees – all events are free to the public, offering a great chance for all interested parties to come and celebrate. It is thus estimated that the turnout for the event will be much greater than previous years. The organizers have advised residents to keep with etiquette and to cooperate with the staff on-hand when participating in events and buying drinks.
With several stands set up all around the venue serving top quality beer at the best prices, the 2010 Chongqing Beer Carnival promises to be one of the top must-go parties in the city this year!
