Beijing plans parade for its Expo week

WITH actors attired in palace garb and Olympic sportswear, Beijing will hold a dress parade around the Shanghai Expo site during Beijing Week, May 4 to 8, a senior Expo organizer of the capital city said yesterday.

Around 200 actors will dress in different styles of clothes that can be seen at 16 famous venues of the city, including the Forbidden City and the Beijing National Stadium, or Bird's Nest, said Xu Yuwei.

An opening ceremony for the Beijing Week in front of the joint provincial pavilion on the morning of May 4 will be "as exciting as the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics," Xu said.

Also that week, Beijing craftsmen will perform folk arts, including paper-cutting and clay sculpture, around the Expo site.
