The Water Splashing Festival of the Dai ethnic minority

The annual Water Splashing Festival is an important festival of the Dai ethnic minority in YunNan province (and nearby countries) during the New Year celebrations of the Dai Calendar; the finale of three days.

In Buddhism, the water splash is a symbolic washing of the past for a new beginning and is the offering of blessing and respect, as well as joy.
