YOUNG people are invited to a matchmaking party this Friday on Tian’ai Road, the most romantic road in Shanghai with a name that reads literarily “Sweet Love Road,” Hongkou District officials said today.
Many couples are expected to tie the knot on January 4 as the date 201314 is pronounced somewhat like “Love you all my life” in Chinese.
Couples are given the opportunity to express love for each other via video while the singles are encouraged to seize the opportunity to introduce themselves to others.
Participants will also be invited to play games in Fuxing Junior High School and ride a red double-deck bus to tour the area.
The event will run from 7:30am, January 3 to 12pm, January 4.
