Big send-off for final day

THE World Expo site will remain open until midnight today, the final day of the 184-day event.

All pavilions will open from 9:30am to 10:30pm. Parades and performances will take place as usual.

Visitors can remain after the pavilions close and watch the closing ceremony on LED screens around the park.

An indoor variety show at the Expo Center begins at 8:10pm. To ensure safety on the last day, no fireworks will be set off and no carnival will be held, organizers said.

A long list of China's top entertainers and athletes will appear at the closing ceremony, including Shanghai's 110m-hurdler Liu Xiang, Hong Kong singer Jackie Cheung and Taiwanese model Lin Chi-Ling.

Several winners of the "China's Got Talent" television show, which concluded its first season recently in Shanghai, will also attend.

Expo Shanghai Ambassador Jackie Chan will join Expo volunteers for the ceremony's last program.

The closing ceremony will be broadcast live on TV and on websites.
