China has banned people from flying kites, drones, lanterns, balloons and captive pigeons in seven districts of Beijing up to October 1, 2019.
The flying activities have been banned as rehearsals for military parades and other cultural activities are going on in order to mark the 70th anniversary of the Communist Party rule on October 1.
Flying activities that affect flight safety are prohibited in seven of the capital city’s 16 districts from September 15 to October 1, according to a notice posted on Sunday on the Beijing municipal government’s website.
As per reports, military planes were seen to be flying on the parade routes in order to gear up for the foundation day celebrations of the People’s Republic of China founded on October 1, 1949.
Moreover, tankers and various kinds of military vehicles were seen to be preparing for the upcoming celebrations next month.
During the rehearsal time, the roads were closed for the general public.
A number of people are expected to participate in the celebration which is scheduled to be held at Tiananmen Square in Beijing.
China president Xi Jinping will address the public during the ceremony which promises to be a grand spectacle.
It may be mentioned that the People’s Republic of China came to power after winning a civil war against Communist Party of China which lasted from 1927 to 1949.
