Many dances are carried down from generation to generation completely. Most of them have been refined, developed and standardized through years of festivals, performances and ceremonies. The Water Splashing Festival, held by the Dai Nationality in the sixth month of the Dai calendar (in the middle of April), is the grandest ceremonial occasion for the Dai. It is also known as the festival for bathing Buddha. The main festival of Bai people( Bai in Chinese means white ) is the large-scale "The 3rd Month Fair ". Originally, this festival was called Avalokitesvara's Festival. It was Avalokitesvara who opened up the Dali area, subdues Monster Luocha and brought prosperity to the people.
