Recently, the large lion head which entered Guinness World Records appeared at the 2023 Spring Festival Flower Market in Xiqiao Town, attracting countless citizens.
With a height of 4.68 meters and a width of 4.5 meters, the “Lion King” is the treasure of Wong Fei Hung Lion Dance Martial Arts Museum in Xiqiao Mountain. The lion head expresses the wish that people who come to the flower market can have a successful new year.
Now the “Lion King” has ended its circuit and it is exhibited at the front gate of Wong Fei Hung Lion Dance Martial Arts Museum until February 5 (Lantern Festival). People can go to visit the lion head during the Spring Festival.
The first circuit of the “Lion King” was in May 3, 2005. After the “Wong Fei Hung Cup” National Lion Dance Competition, Xiqiao Town held a circuit of one hundred lions in the urban area of Guanshan. The majestic Lion King led 100 Southern Lions in 5 squares. The lion parade attracted more than 100,000 people to watch. The impressive scene is still talked about by locals.
