On February 17, 2019, international students from Ghana, India and Ethiopia attending Jiangsu University visited the Erdaogang Community at the Qilidian Street in Zhenjiang. Joining the locals in celebration of the upcoming Lantern Festival, one of the most important traditional Chinese festivals, they learned how to make embellished paper lanterns under the guidance of 82-year-old folk artist Liu Meiliang.
