Events in Shanghai
Eating mooncakes with families is an important custom of the annual Mid-Autumn Festival. This year, the festival falls on 24th September and if you are in Shanghai during this time, make your way to Jin Mao Tower, the 3rd highest building in Shanghai for a clearer sight of the moon. There is an observation platform at Level 88, the highest floor and on top of that, you will have the sensational panoramic view of the city’s twinkling skyline.
There’s half marathon and full marathon. But in Shanghai, there’s the Bubble Run. Popular with people of all ages, the Bubble Run originated from America and is described as “running through Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory”. Let’s have some fun and do the run through different coloured foam bogs; which are 100% safe!
It's not a competition: there's no judge, no time limit, and no placement awards.
Held annually since 2000 on the National Day every year in Shanghai Century Park, the music fireworks event is hosted by Shanghai Tourism Management Committee and Shanghai Pudong New Area People's Government. Shanghai International Music Fireworks Festival uses Chinese and foreign culture as its soul. Each year six famous fireworks companies from around the world take part in the fireworks display competition.
