LOS ANGELES, March 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Organised by the Shaanxi tourism board, the "Holding hands on the Millennium Silk Road" event was launched in Grand Park, Los Angeles, with people of all ages filling the park to experience the romanticism of this magical and mysterious event.
Following the success of cosplay activities on February 25 and 26, which brought Yang Guifei, Tang Minghuang, and the Terracotta Warriors back to life, Shaanxi Tourism Bureau quickly launched the "Holding hands on the Millennium Silk Road" event. Parts of Grand Park were transformed into scenes from Shaanxi, and with a backdrop of The Silk Road, tourists were able to take photographs to help them cherish their day on the Grand Park's version of 'The Silk Road'. The interactive activities on display let everyone view the unique history and culture of Shaanxi, and having experienced the style of the Silk Road, a final surprise was provided, as a variety of special Shaanxi gifts were given to visitors to remember their day.
Once the event was underway, an excited couple said: "This event is great; we are very lucky to live in Los Angeles, and now that the event has arrived here, we can also experience it." The boyfriend of this couple had seen friends on Facebook promoting the event, and brought his girlfriend to attend. He said that many people living in modern urban society often live a monotonous life, therefore they usually choose to travel during the holiday season to release the pressure built up by work. This type of activity is very creative, there is no need to rush around, and everyone can experience the magic and culture of another country.
The "Holding hands on the Millennium Silk Road" event gave many busy people a special opportunity to express their love to their companions. It reminded people that even in the midst of their busy city lives, they should not forget to give warmth and affection to those who are dearest to them.
