Locals and visitors gathered in Linzi, Shandong on Friday, to enjoy the swathes of pink 'hairawn muhly' grass stretching across the fields.

"It is very good here, and the environment is very good," said one fan, Xue Li. "Walk into nature, personally into nature, come over on the weekend to relax."

Footage includes drone shots flying over the fields, as well as visitors taking photos and selfies in front of the phenomenon, which resembles pink candy floss.

"It is good, you can bring kids to play … you can ride a bike. The transportation is also very convenient, and not far from the city centre, and quite close to our home," said Han Mengqi.

"At present, the (COVID-19) epidemic prevention and control is relatively strict, and masks are required. … Such open places are relatively good for control," she continued.

The grass is traditionally in full bloom between September and mid-November.
