Basic Info:

    Sisters Meal Festival Tour

    Sisters Meal festival will happen in the villages around Taijiang County on April 10-13 in 2017. It originally started in Laotun village. This festival could be dated back to many years ago, but nobody can tell in which year it started. Some local old famers ever told us that, long time ago, in a village of Laotun, there were more than 20 girls who did not have a boyfriend yet, because their village was isolated, and hard to be visited by young men of other villages. Those girls' parents got worried about their daughters' future, so did the girls. Because in the Miao villages, a 22-year old single girl could be called "too old and hard to find a husband". Therefore, their parents tried to arrange a party and invite young men of other villages to join, so the "old girls" could find boyfriends. Before the party, their parents went to a market in Shidong which happens every 6 days (still happens today) to announce the party's date: the 15th day of the 3rd lunar month.  After the first party, most of them found boyfriends. If some of them did not get yet, they can wait for next party's coming. Year by year, this party becomes a festival for young people to get to know each other. Today, this festival not only happens in Laotun, but also in Shidong and other Miao villages.
