A festival aiming to build harmonious relationship among community residents raised its curtain in Jiading on April 26.

More than 280 events will be held throughout the year to celebrate the annual Jiading Harmony Neighborhood Festival launched by the district government. Residents in the same community are encouraged to join cultural and sports events so that they can get to know each other.

Mao Yurong, a newcomer to Jiading from Northeast China's Heilongjiang province, met two neighbors at a community event last year and the three became close friends.

"Now, we regularly meet, make small talk and do handwork together. Thanks to the Harmony Neighborhood Festival, we feel more attached to the community," Mao said.

An official WeChat account – Jiading Harmony Neighborhood – was launched on the same day, through which subscribers can check details of community events and other information such as personal housing accumulation funds.
