More than 200 decorative lights for the Olympics got a tryout in Beijing on Thursday evening.

The new installations will join the city's more than 2,000 lighting facilities during the Games, according to Jia Jianping, head of the night scene department of the Beijing Municipal Administration Commission.

Electricity-saving equipment was used in the displays at major cultural sites, such as the Forbidden City and the Summer Palace, parks, crossover bridges and along streets.

"Beijing has become more beautiful," said Wang Jieyun, who was photographing the lights at the Sanyuanqiao overpass in eastern Beijing.

The displays "will not consume electricity and there is no need to worry about power supplies," Jia said.
