The opening ceremony of the 2022 Lion-head Goose Cultural Festival was held in Chenghai District of Shantou, South China’s Guangdong Province, on Tuesday afternoon. Kicking off with a drum beating and Two Fighting Geese performances, the ceremony rewarded masters of goose delicacies, breeders of the top 3 biggest lion-head geese in 2021 and local enterprises that made great contributions to the export of goose products. Participants also got the chance to taste various dishes made of goose.
Lion-head goose, one of the three giant goose species in the world, is an authentic goose raised in Chenghai District of Shantou. The goose gets the name for its huge lion-like head and enjoys a high reputation in and outside China. It’s said that the lion-head goose is a better house guard than a dog to the local people.
