After the fall harvests, villages in Guizhou province, China, celebrate with rice festivals, where people of all ages gather. Village fields are transformed into fair grounds with stalls selling food and balloons; and activities such as water buffalo fights, horse races, and dancing. Women wear their regional dress and headdress. In Chong An, the Gejia minority and Red Miao gather. Men everywhere carry their birdcages with them.

Location: Chong An Village, Guizhou, China
