Our reporter learned from Luyang District that the 6th Hefei Peony Festival is on in Sanguo Garrison Relics Park and the event is scheduled from April 5 to May 4.
Since 2008, Sanguo Garrison Relics Park has planted more than 30,000 peonies of over 50 species in 12 colors, including Luoyanghong, Huhong, Roufurong and Yinhongqiaodui. This year some rare breeds with yellow and black petals, like Haihuang, Wujinyaohui, have also been cultivated. During the festival, a series of other events, such as entertainment shows, exhibitions, recreations and a food fair will be on as well in the park. Several new activities will be arranged particularly this year, such as a "Peony Fairy"talent contest, a dinosaur exhibition and a Zigong Lantern show. Visitors will have more fun in the park.
