The highlight of the festival highlights is the lotus pond in Huayuan new village, which covers an area of about 1,000 mu (66.67 hectares). It is a perfect place to admire lotus flowers in summer.

"Since early July, there have been thousands of visitors flocking to Huayuan new village each day to appreciate the beautiful flowers," said a staff member of Hunan Qunyi Eco-agriculture Co, based in Chunhua town. "It helps increase sales of lotus seedpods as well as boost local tourism."
