JIANDE, Sept. 22 (Xinhua) -- A farmers' sports contest is held on Wednesday in Datong Town of Jiande City, east China's Zhejiang Province, to celebrate harvest ahead of the Chinese farmers' harvest festival, which falls on Sept. 23 this year.

Starting in 2018, the Chinese farmers' harvest festival coincides with the autumnal equinox each year, which is one of the 24 solar terms of the Chinese lunar calendar and usually falls between Sept. 22 and 24 during the country's agricultural harvest season.
