Ditan Park, or Temple of Earth.

It’s huge, and packed. One of the most popular festivals during the Spring Festival, this is a giant fair. The temple has its version of boardwalk games, and barkers of course, that go on and on. Did see one show, folk-festival dancing of some sort. Some great lamb kabobs are made here, and the non-fried squid on a stick was real popular. It’s a big Beijing style carnival.

This is another great area of Beijing. You’ll actually run into other expats around here, and there are some great spots we westerners appreciate.
