The 2014 Shanghai Tourism Festival will be held from September 13 to October 6. The parade at this year's opening ceremony will feature 24 foreign performing groups from 16 countries, 8 performing groups from China and 22 floats. Performers from Europe, South America, North America, Oceania and Asia will number over 1,400, which will be a record high in the history of the Festival. There will be many new faces, including Disneyland. A Disneyland's float will appear in the parade, the first time ever that Disneyland will come in close contact with Shanghai's residents.
As one of the activities during Shanghai Tourism Festival, "Color Run", to be held on September 27, is a novel non-competitive game, which has drummed up widespread interest among Shanghai's citizens. Many locals have signed up for participation. In addition, the Festival will feature "Dancing Horse Shanghai", an equestrian themed exercise, for the first time, treating enthusiasts to the fascinating show with a long history from the west.
"Shanghai Bund", a musical adapted from the eponymous classic TV drama that blends the distinctive elements of western musicals and Chinese traditional artistic elements, will premiere during the Festival.
