Galloping horses, thrilled riders, exciting lookers, piercing drumbeats…That’s what you can see on the sixteenth day of the lunar month in a small village in north China.

On this day every year, horse-riding activity is held on an old street in my hometown, attracting lots of visitors from nearby villages. At around 9:00 am, people swarm onto the street and take up a favorable position which can ensure a good view of the game. They stand either at the doorways or on flat roofs of the houses lining at both sides.

Whoever is brave enough can get a chance to participate. As soon as the drumbeat starts, young men will drive their horses to gallop forward, and the audience cheer for them.

That’s what impresses me most during the spring festival season in my hometown.

How about yours? Come and share!
