A winter Nadam as well as a fire sacrifice festival kicked off on Tuesday in Old Barag Banner (county) of Hulunbuir, a city of North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region.

Popular sports events and entertainment among ethnic Mongolians will highlight this year's winter Nadam.

During a series of sports events, local residents will take in three major activities - horse racing, archery and Mongolian wrestling - as well as a marathon and a skiing competition.

Nadam is a mass traditional Mongolian festival where people celebrate harvests and pray for good luck. The winter Nadam Fair is usually held from December to January.
