The closing ceremony of the Chengdu FISU World University Games on Tuesday night was held not in a stadium, but in a park.

Resembling a jubilant carnival, the grand finale overflowed with heartfelt farewells and radiant optimism.

Held in the Chengdu Open Air Music Park, the event had people and their stories as its focus.

"We have transformed the entire music park into a warm and inviting campfire setting," said Wei Sijia, executive chief director of the closing ceremony.

The ceremony used smartphones as its central element, with a "livestreamer" who broadcast the event and interacted with the audience online.

"Since it's an event for the youth, the elements of expression must align with the lives of young people," Wei explained.
