People of the Hani ethnic group in southwest China's Yunnan Province held the first of what will be an annual carnival to celebrate a traditional sun festival with singing and dancing performances.
The carnival will last for three days in Mojiang Hani Autonomous County, known as "City of the Sun" because the Tropic of Cancer runs through it.
As part of the ongoing Kunming International Tourism Festival, the carnival featured fashion shows of traditional Hani style costumes, a seminar on Hani culture and games such as tug of war, cockfights, spinning tops and seesaws.
