The sec­ond In­ter­na­tional Chil­dren's Day Par­ent-chil­dren Car­ni­val took place at the Yel­low Crane Tower Park on May 26. The event was jointly or­ga­nized by the Wuhan For­eign Af­fairs Of­fice, the Wuhan Friendship As­so­ci­a­tion with For­eign Coun­tries, and Yel­low Crane Tower Park. Fif­teen for­eign fam­i­lies liv­ing in Wuhan par­tic­i­pated in the car­ni­val.

The age of the chil­dren of th­ese for­eign fam­i­lies ranged from six months to eight years old. Ac­com­pa­nied by their par­ents, they went to the top of the Yel­low Crane Tower and en­joyed a bird's eye view of Wuhan.

After the visit to the Yel­low Crane Tower, the chil­dren and their par­ents painted to­gether on a long blank scroll on the theme of "beau­ti­ful Wuhan." Im­ages such as the Yel­low Crane Tower and trees and flow­ers around the park were por­trayed on the scroll. Lulu, a girl from Yemen, along with her fa­ther, Yumes Al­man­soob, painted the na­tional flags of China and Yemen side by side. Al­man­soob also drew an im­age of the QQ pen­guin wear­ing a red scarf be­side the flags. "It is part of my life here. That is why I wanted to paint it," said Al­man­soob.

The for­eign fam­i­lies also watched a chime-bell dance per­for­mance in the park.
