Li Hongzhong, governor of Hubei, delivered a speech before songs and dances were performed.

Yok Mu-ming, chairman of the New Party in Taiwan, attended the ceremony along with others from Hong Kong and Macao.

"My major in college was medicine, so Yan Emperor is really my master in this respect," Yok said.

May 20 is the fourth of April according to the Chinese Lunar calendar. That is the day believed to be the birthday of Yan Emperor.
