There’s no better way to mark the end of the lunar new year than to attack a few “Japanese devils”, as these actors performing a daguizi (“打鬼子”) skit at a Yuanxiao festival parade yesterday in Lingbao, Henan Province, show us.
Actors with painted faces masquerading as Japanese soldiers march down the parade route with rifles in hand.
The performance by the life-sized caricatures of Japanese soldiers brings much joy and merriment to the onlookers, as evidenced by the smiles and laughter all round.
