Visitors can reserve night tours of the Badaling Great Wall every Friday and Saturday during the festival that will end on Oct. 7, said Chen Mingjie, head of the Beijing municipal administration of cultural heritage, said at a press conference held in Beijing Friday.

An evening gala of the Mid-Autumn Festival, a cultural fair on Chinese traditional costumes and online lectures including one about cultural heritage protection that is co-organized by the Hadrian's Wall of Britain, are also scheduled during the festival, said Chen.

The Great Wall, with a total length of more than 20,000 km, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and consists of many interconnected walls. Beijing has a total of 520 km of Great Wall sections within its territory, of which, the Badaling section is the most visited.
