The Saihan District Mongolian Kindergarten in Hohhot, capital city of north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region held the Nahiya Nadam Fair on May 31, 2013, to help the children learn more about traditional Mongolian culture.

The Nadam Fair is a traditional activity of the Mongolian ethnic group in China. It is derived from the Mongols' ancient nomadic way of life which involved riding, shooting and wrestling.

The word 'Nadam' in Mongolian is a joint term for Mongolian-type wrestling, riding and shooting. The Nadam Fair falls on the fourth day of the sixth lunar month (between July and August in the solar calendar), and people from any ethnic group or religion are welcome to join in the celebrations.
