The annual Miao Sisters Festival was hosted in Taijiang County, southwest China's Guizhou Province on Tuesday.  

The main activities included singing, eating "sisters' rice," dancing to the sounds of the lusheng (a mouth organ made of bamboo pipes) and wooden drum, exchanging tokens, and even getting engaged. It is dubbed the "festival hidden in the flower bud" and is also known as the oldest version of Valentine's Day in Asia.  

The Taijiang Miao Sisters Festival is one of the most significant and culturally rich festivals in Southeast Guizhou Province. In June 2006, the Miao Sisters Festival was listed as one of the first national intangible cultural heritages.
