Despite sweltering heat on the Saturday, and then an on, off and then on again Sunday, more than 1,000 families headed out to Green City in Jinqiao last weekend for our annual Sound of Spring festival.
The event saw lots of fun to be had, with bouncy castles, trampolines, a carousel, arts & crafts, a football tournament organized by the Shanghai Lions and some fantastic performances – a special thank you to Wellington College and the amazing Paul Tkachenko for saving the music on Sunday!
Here's a few photos from the event; you can find the full gallery right here.
We'd also like to say a big thank you to all of our vendors...
