Bullfight festival & lusheng festival & miao sister's meal festival these three minority folk festival will be held during the May 1st holiday and take place on Kaili guizhou where is rich minority culture.the place where suraround moutains and rivers ,the village located hillside. as all we know during the May 1st holiday everywhere in china will be crowed.if you want to avoid rush period and see something really especail i think go to villages around the kaili is the wise discion you made.
BULLFIGHT FESTIVAL the bull play a important part in miao culture,they still worship the bull. bullfights are both popular and customary in miao regions.unlike the bullfight in spain in which a man fights a bull,in miao version it is two bulls which fight each other.the bull lower their heads and begin butting each other,more often or not ,neither bull will give in.resulting in stalemate.,when the bulls' heads bleed from the wounds inflicted in fight,each said sends ten young man to separate the them the bulls are pulled away from the each other to avoid more injuries,a stalemate is judged a draw,the said whose bull falls or runs away from the arena is the loser.
Miao sister's meal festival we also named " chinese lover" festival because it's time for miao youngers looking for their marrige,very interesting you can not miss it.
festinval is for fun and miao main function is for young prople to meet each other and find marriage.this festival will last 5 days provide the opportunity to travel around,socialize,meet friends and kinsfolk and be entertained by singing and playing lusheng pipe and dancing,cockfighting and horse racing,a market is frequently set up during thses events that allows villagers to buy much needed goods.
