Amazing water jet pack stunts to mark Daughter's Day in SW China
Two Chinese men have made a really big splash as they celebrated the Daughter's Day over the weekend performing impressive water jet pack stunts to entertain crowds in Guangyuan, a city in southwest China's Sichuan Province.
The two were seen hovering above the water in Nanhe Water Park, twirling, flipping and pulling thrilling tricks.
The Daughter's Day is an annual traditional festival that falls on the first day of September in China. It commemorates the only female ruler in Chinese history, Empress Wu (Wu Zetian or Wu Zhao).
Guangyuan is controversially named as the birthplace of the empress, who reigned during the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AD). She has been one of the most debatable figures in the history of ancient China.
For over 1,300 years, women in the claimed hometown of the the female ruler marked her birthday with celebrations on boats.
The local government decided to restore the traditional festival in 1988 and named it the Daughters' Day.
