The Dai dancing show at the Ethnic Minorities Park in Beijing ends with a recreation of a water festival similar to those performed in Thailand. All the performers chase each other around splashing each other with buckets of water. It looks like great fun for hot summer days.

The Ethnic Minorities Park in Beijing features native costumes, culture, and dances of the various non-Han groups that live within China. This group, the Dai, are from the southern region of China near the border with Thailand. The costumes and dancing style closely resemble that of their neighbor to the south.
