The Lisu people living in downtown Shangri-La City celebrated Kuoshi Festival with ethnic performances on December 24.

In Lisu language, "Kuo" means "year and "Shi" means "new." For the Lisu, the festival is equivalent to the Spring Festival celebrated by China's majority Han population. Officially, the festival lasted for three days from Dec. 20-24, but the festivities can last for an entire month.
