This temple fair carried out a series of activities such as singing Southern Opera, writing Spring Festival couplets, and exhibiting intangible cultural heritage. At the same time, more than 100 food exhibition areas and production areas have been set up on the site. Special local agricultural products such as salted duck, cured pig’s trotters, firewood tofu, and glutinous rice balls are very popular.
In the “Fried Turnsan” paving, the craftsman Xu Weiqiao cut the rolled noodle cake into rectangular dough pieces, made a small opening on it with a knife, then turned one end of the dough piece through the small opening, and finally put it into the oil pan and deep-fried until golden. “This is a must-have traditional New Year product for many people in Hubei. ‘Fansan’ has the meaning of ‘turning over’, saying goodbye to the old, welcoming the new and looking forward to the future.” He said.
