Guanqian main street (观前主街) took on a new face and welcomed the public with its spectacular illuminations and vigorous energy as it reopened at 7:30pm last night(July 25).
With a multimedia laser show combined with performances, the Heaven Gate (第一天门), a former landmark of the Gongxiang Lane (宫巷), demonstrated the profound historical and cultural foundations of the city through a special light presentation.
After that, 300 drones rose to the sky and flew in formation, showing such words as “我爱苏州”(I Love Suzhou) and “姑苏八点半”(Gusu 8:30pm), and also the shape of local landmarks such as the Gate of the Orient (东方之门).
The main street, after an all-around renovation, has fully optimized its infrastructure with the addition of four fashion stand areas with different themes.
Besides, the reopening of Guanqian main street also marks a new season of “Gusu 8:30pm”, featuring a number of interesting events.
