Approximately 13,000 people enjoyed bowls of mutton rice noodles in Xingyi on Dec 17 after hiking 7.8 kilometers as part of the city’s first International Mutton Rice Noodle Festival.
Xingyi, located in Qianxinan Bouyei and Miao autonomous prefecture, was honored as the “hometown of mutton rice noodles” by the Chinese Hotel Association at the third Silk Road Food Festival in Sanya, Hainan province. Therefore, the city took the chance to promote itself and invited the world to have a taste of its specialty.
Participants from 15 countries, including the United States, France, and South Korea, started at the entrance of the Wanfeng Forest scenic spot, hiked through the sea of flowers, and finally arrived at Southwest Square where bowels of mutton rice noodle were ready for them.
