Royal Manchu Ice Skating Performances This Week Only at Beihai Park

Royal Manchu Ice Skating Performances This Week Only at Beihai Park

bingxi_01.jpg

Spectators to the Beihai Park ice show can see skaters skating in formation holding Qing dynasty-era flags as well as acrobatic feats.

With the 2022 Winter Olympics drawing ever nearer, Beijing has been rolling out numerous winter outdoor activities to immerse the public in winter sports. Although it has been largely unknown (at least to us here at the Beijinger), the Beihai royal ice show has been going on for years. For although ice skating may not seem to be a big part of traditional Chinese culture, it was definitely important to the Manchurians.

Historical records depict Beihai Lake inundated with hundreds of ice skaters during Manchu rule, with Qing Emperor Qianlong at one time calling it a "national pastime."
