On the morning of July 21, over 80 overseas Chinese youth from the US, Canada, Italy and Japan, dressed in the traditional Han costumes, gathered at the Peiju Library of Zhenhai District to participate in the coming-of-age ceremony and experience in person the Confucius culture.

As an important part of the Ningbo calligraphy branch of the Trip in Search for Roots in China Summer Camp, the ceremony kept to the traditional procedures of bathing, perfuming and wine sparkling. With the directions of the ceremony officer and the melodious music of the bells ringing, the honored guests were invited to carry out the capping (for boys) and hair-pinning (for girls) ceremony for the participating overseas Chinese youth. After the ceremony, the youth recited the extracts from the Great Learning and prostrated themselves before the Confucius statue.
