More than a thousand wind chimes have disappeared from the trees of Xiandu Scenic Area in Jinyun County, Zhejiang Province, forcing the traditional month-long Wing Chime Festival to shut down after just six days.
Over the May Day long weekend, tourists visiting the countryside park "madly grabbed" almost all of the over 1,000 wind chimes hanging from tree branches around the 160 square kilometer site.
As a result, curtains closed on the month-long celebration after less than a week. Anyone who planned on enjoying the event later this month will be sorely disappointed, and as will anyone who considered going any other year.
As long as "uncivilized" behavior like this remains the order of the day, organizers say they don't dare ever running the festival again.
