Dai Flower Street 花节

28 February 2018 in Mosha, Xinping County

Just when it is getting really hot in the Red River Valley celebrate the Huayao Dai their Flower Street Festival.

The Huayao Dai are some of the snappiest dressers in the province. Their elaborate costumes, lavishly decorated with silver ornaments, and topped off with a bamboo hat worn at an angle is very striking. And while on most days only the older women don their this expensive dress, during the Flower Street Festival, held with a giant market around the 13th day of the lunar year, all the young women drag out their costume and get on their feet to dance.

Festival held according to lunar calendar on 农历1月13.
