Millions of tulips are blooming across Jing’an District in a fence-less tulip festival.
This year, Jing’an is ablaze with tulips of more than 100 varieties, the grandest tulip feast in the district’s history, according to the local culture and tourism bureau. The flowers are primarily blooming in nine parks: Daning, Jing’an Sculpture, Zhabei, Square, Xikang, Butterfly Bay, Jing’an, Middle Ring and Yonghe parks.
In Daning Park, the array of vibrant colors, including white, purple and orange, covers about 22,000 square meters, nearly the size of three football fields.

Flowers are designed to have special shapes and styles, and some feature Dutch-themed installations and designs such as cows and windmills.
According to the Xinhu Group, flowers were shipped from the Netherlands. To prevent the coronavirus from spreading, they were disinfected and placed in storage for more than a month before entering China.
Daning Park's Xinhu Tulip Expo kicked off today and will run until through the end of the month. Admission is free.
