Some festivals are celebrated by many different ethnic groups, but the time, means of celebration and legends may be different. For example, besides Yi, Bai, Naxi and Pumi also celebrate the Torch Festival. Besides Dai, Bulang and A’chang also celebrate the Water-splashing Festival. On the occasions of festivals, people will gather together in their traditional costumes, singing, dancing and playing games.
