 Suning in Hebei, one of the cradles of the province’s folk culture, is a county with 13 items of intangible cultural heritage at provincial-level and city-level, which include Suning blown sugar sculpture, martial arts dramas, and Huamei Zhang-style vocal imitation. 
To protect and promote the county’s intangible cultural heritages, the local government has laid out policies to support its traditional craftsmanship. It is encouraging inheritors to perform Suning’s exquisite crafts outside the county, which will not only serve to help these crafts gain more popularity, but also increase the income of inheritors.
In line with this strategy, an art troupe from Xibozhuang village, Suning county recently visited Taihang Water Town -- a 4A scenic spot in Baoding city, Hebei province -- to showcase Suning county’s traditional craftsmanship to tourists during the town’s arts festival.
