The Lunar New holiday period traditionally ends with the Lantern Festival, a boisterous celebration involving fireworks, bonfires, and paper lanterns going into the air. In Haerbin, the frozen Songhua River (Songhua Jiang) provides a stage for the activity, with fires directly on the ice and thousands of people celebrating.
