The Empire of Dwarfs in China (video + pics), updated

Dwarfs empire in China – The Empire of Dwarfs, a crazy theme park not far from Kunming.

References to Snow White are disappeared, but dwarfs are still the main attraction.

A number of dwarfs, a deformed calf and a talented acrobat from Xinjiang are the main attractions of the theme park.

Twice a day dwarf dancers and dwarf singers perform in front of an audience of families and schools. If at first glance, this idea of creating a theme park based on dwarfs can at least be perplexing, for these people who come from all parts of China, is certainly one of the few alternatives to a life of begging.

UPDATE: A friend told us the Empire has been shut down recently (2015).
