Artists from Sichuan province put on a series of performances to celebrate the upcoming Chinese Lunar New Year in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, on Jan 18.

This marked the first time the Happy Chinese New Year tour came to the country. About 500 government officials and representatives from China and Bosnia and Herzegovina attended the gala.

Despite the extremely cold and snowy weather, many locals still went to the event. "Chinese artists are amazing. It was worth the trip," one resident said.

A local student, Tu Xun (he adopted a Chinese name), who once studied in China expressed his excitement after the event.

"I felt like I was back to China again when I watched the wonderful performances. And they made me touch the spirit of Chinese New Year again; it is my favorite festival," Tu said.

This is the second leg of the Happy Chinese New Year tour in four East European countries. The next stop was Albania.
