Crowds cheered loudly at the dazzling fireworks display last night at the Civic center, that marked the 30th anniversary of the Shenzhen Economic Zone to herald a new beginning. The celebration also featured a five minute laser show that was shown before the 30 minute colorful fireworks display.

The fireworks display was also accompanied by the theme music that reflect the city’s hard work and enterprising spirit over the 30 years. 1 million people were watching the fireworks at different vantage points, with many of them applauding and waving light sticks.

The city government will also be holding the first choral festival by the end of this month to unveil 30 outstanding songs in the city’s 30 year history. A Shenzhen Cultural Week is also scheduled to open in Beijing consisting of an art exhibition of the 30 year development of Shenzhen, a concert and poster invitation exhibition.
