Torch Festival Kicks off in Southeastern China

The Torch Festival, an annual traditional event celebrated by several ethnic groups in southwest China, falls in the latter portion of the sixth lunar month. The Yi people celebrated the Torch Festival this month with thousands of people joining with lit torches to drive away bad luck. At night, a massive bonfire is lit in the center of the event, with attendees carrying smaller torches. The thousands-of-years-old ceremony also celebrated these days with more modern fireworks, but the original elements remain the same, including traditional dancing, music, food and games. The event is visually incredible and the spirit festive, making the Torch Festival an excellent event for travelers from all over the world to join in on.
