  Beijing Police on Thursday announced heightened security measures for major events scheduled over the upcoming Spring Festival holiday and Lantern Festival.

  A public security bureau spokesperson said all event attendees would undergo safety checks.

  In addition, to ensure public safety the police will manage crowds and remove unlicensed peddlers and taxies from around venues.

  A total of 124 major events will be staged in Beijing between Feb. 7 and 14 to celebrate Chinese New Year, or Spring Festival, which falls on Feb. 8 this year. The events are expected to attract 2.64 million visitors.

  Another nine events expect 116,000 visitors for Lantern Festival on Feb. 22.

  Among the popular events are "miaohui", temple fairs. These colorfully decorated fairs usually feature performances, such as stilt-walkers and dragon and lion dances, and snacks.

  The police predict that well-known temple fairs could each attract more than 100,000 visitors a day.
