On the 29th of November, 2010, a spectacular celebration of song and dance Hakka culture was held in the Cultural Square of Heyuan City, north-east Guangdong province, with a rendition of ‘The Hakka People have Affection for the Ancient City’.  Hakka Associations from around the world gathered in Heyuan City (an area of ancient Hakka population) as a sign of respect and admiration.  The Hakka cultural exhibition was very rich and included amongst many other interesting aspects loyalty and honesty lanterns, a dramatic light show, as well as a magnificent fireworks display.  (Zhang Haiyan, Yang Hong, Wang Junxia, Wei Qingcheng)
