Here we shine a spotlight on some of Fujian's vibrant local traditions dating back centuries.
The great admiral and Ming Dynasty loyalist,Zheng Chenggong is still revered in China today, and versions of the "attack the cannon castle" ritual continue to be held in his honor in cities across Fujian and Taiwan.
Old ritual dating back to Tang Dynasty, xing nuo is still in practice in Putian city to this day.
The ritual has a long history in Putian and is intended to bring good luck and a rich harvest in the coming year.
This was the villagers, along with visitors and homecoming overseas Chinese, praying for an auspicious year ahead.
In this unique performance, one brave local resident strips to the waist and stands next to the village's firework display.
