Dressed in traditional costumes, Tibetans participate in the opening ceremony of the third Culture & Commodities Trade Fair.

The opening ceremony of the third Culture & Commodities Trade Fair was held on August 1 in Xaitongmoin County, Xigaze Prefecture of Tibet Autonomous Region (TAR).

The event is another grand festival in Xaitongmoin County after the first two were successfully held in 2005 and 2007 respectively.

During the 7-day festival, traditional horse racing, local product promotion and art performances will be presented for visitors.

"Xaitongmoin", meaning "Feel happy at first sight" in Tibetan language, is a place famous for its rich mineral resources and superb natural scenery.

As time passes by, local Tibetans have gradually developed their ancestors' horse riding and hunting activities into a folk sport event called horse racing, which is very popular among the local people.
