Horse-themed activities were held in a characteristic town with a strong aerospace and sports culture in Wenchang, Hainan province from May 1- 4 to celebrate the May Day holiday.

A variety of activities were offered for visitors to enjoy, such as indoor and outdoor horse performances, presentations of star horses, horse riding activities, and windmill tours in flower fields.

Restaurants, cafes, cigar bars, and a children's amusement park will be open to the public in the near future. Visitors will be able to enjoy luxurious accommodations, relaxing entertainment, and smooth traffic in the town.

The town has received an initial investment of about one billion yuan ($148.88 million). It boasts dozens of interesting clubs, events, and attractions, including a horse club, horse sports for autism rehabilitation, and a sports center for astronauts.

The first phase of the project had been completed in January and the first Spring Festival equestrian carnival was organized from Feb 7 to 9.

The town is striving to build itself into a pastoral community. More job opportunities are expected to help locals in their poverty alleviation efforts. The town will also contribute to the construction of a free trade port and an international tourism consumption center in Hainan.
