The Fifth Zhejiang Snow Sports Carnival kicked off at Qiaobo Ice and Snow World in Keqiao district, Shaoxing on April 1.
A relay race was held after the opening ceremony to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Communist Party of China.
Organizers of the carnival said that they selected Keqiao as the first stop of the provincial event because of the district's strong sports industry, as well as due to locals' enthusiasm for fitness.
In 2020, the city built 50 sports-themed parks, offering more options for residents to work out and exercise.
With the purpose of facilitating public fitness, the 11 sports parks each have a land area of more than 3,000 square meters, with at least four sports grounds.
To meet the demands of different groups, the sports parks also set up special areas for children, young adults, middle-aged adults, and seniors.
Several parks also provide smart management and services, in which fitness facilities boast QR code scanning functions to provide users with video guidance.
