Farmers in southwest China's Yunnan Province held various celebrations to observe the country's first Farmers' Harvest Festival which fell on Sept. 23 this year.

“The rice is ripe, the ducks and fish are getting fat. We welcome all the friends to celebrate the harvest with us!” The Yuanyang Rice Flower and Fish Harvest Festival was held in the Hani terraced fields in Yuanyang County of southeast Yunnan's Honghe Hani and Yi Autonomous Prefecture.

In southwest Yunnan's Baoshan City, local famers held a feast in Xinjie Village, promoting the farming culture, presenting green agricultural products and promoting agritourism to the visitors.

“I caught the golden fishes!” In central Yunnan’s E'shan Yi Autonomous County, a fish-catching event was held. People rolled up their trousers and caught fishes in the fields. The activity attracted a lot of tourists from afar.

In central Yunnan's Lufeng County, a special exhibition was held to display more than 60 kinds of featured quality produce, showing the fruitful results of agricultural development in Lufeng's 14 townships.
