The city receives many local returnees, who are now either studying or working in big cities elsewhere, during major holidays and especially during Spring Festival.

They showed their interest in art and cultural experiences by going out to watch the holiday performances, Tian says.

Shaowu authorities worked hard to create a festive atmosphere for returnees.

"We don't impose specific requirements on the quality of a performance. The main focus is on entertainment, celebration, harmony and liveliness, and everyone taking part," Tian says.

"As long as you have some talent and you want to perform, you're welcome on our stage."

Over the past three decades, He has been involved in Spring Festival celebration planning, which means less time to spend with her family.

"They have been very understanding. For me, getting involved in holiday work comes from my passion for art, and the positive public response has been really rewarding," she says.

She adds that her colleagues feel the same way, and have always immediately rushed to the spot to deal with emergencies.

"I feel the government is ensuring that the people celebrate the Chinese New Year holiday with lively activities," He says.

"There's also growing cultural demand; every venue was bustling, proving the public's enthusiasm," she adds.
