The 27th Ziyuan Traditional Ethnic River Lantern Song Festival was celebrated in Ziyuan County, south China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region on Saturday evening.  

Every year in the middle of the seventh lunar month, locals and tourists place colorful lanterns of various shapes on the Zijiang River when night falls, and let the lanterns float away as they sing to commemorate their ancestors and pray for fortune.  

The event was first held in 1995 by the local government. In 2014, the festival was included in the fourth batch of national intangible cultural heritage in China.
