If saying “cheese” isn’t enough for you to grin all day long after taking a family snap, perhaps you need another cheesy twist to your day! The Beijing Pizza Festival continues today (Oct 14) at Zhongguancun Software Park in Haidian District from 11am to 8pm… and remember, kids under 1.2 meters enter for free!
And since we’re talking about photos that would add some flavor to your WeChat Moments or Instagram feed, our team’s cameras are on the go and taking quick snaps, all uploaded on our live photo streaming link (check it out here!) Select what you want from the stream, upload them on your social media spaces, and tag us using #nihaothebeijinger or #beijingkids or #beijingpizzafestival or all!
Here are some photos of the extravaganza that happened on Day 1 of the festival:
Ready for a Cheesy Journey to the West?
To get to this year’s event, held at the sprawling Zhongguancun Software Park, simply take subway Line 13 to Xi’erqi (西二旗) station and get off at Exit B. Walk to your left for 3 min until you reach the first intersection and take Shangdi 9th Street, which is on your right. From there, walk straight ahead for around 5 min until you see the UFO-looking structure of the park!
