Magnificent Fireworks Show Held on National Day
A grand music fireworks show themed “Ode to Autumn – My Motherland and Me” was launched on the Orange Isle at 20:30, October 1, the National Day. This was to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China.
The show had several parts, including “Great Motherland”, “Splendid Hunan”, “Happy Changsha”, and “Fulfilling the Chinese Dream”. Ten thousands of environmentally-friendly fireworks, in the patterns of Chinese characters “Long Live, Motherland (祖国万岁)” and figure “70”, were shot off on an 1100-squm screen made of steel wire cloth.
