Hello and welcome to this edition of "In the Spotlight" where we talk about arts, culture and showbiz here in China. I'm your host Wang Lu.
If you ask me which season I like the best in China, I would definitely say spring, because spring always brings the most intoxicating events to the country.
One highlight of springtime is the kite-flying gala held in Weifang, the world's kite capital in east China. Every spring, the city attracts millions of kite enthusiasts from around the world to the world's largest international kite festival.
On today's program, we are going to give you some insights into kites, an exquisite Chinese invention, by taking you to the home of kites, Weifang, where we'll also take a peek at how kites have affected the city and its people over the years.
