If you happen to meet a long table banquet, then the Danzhai town will change another look. The long alley has a red table that cant be seen at the end. As the crowd grows, the town gradually becomes more and more lively. When I got up, I could see the scene on the street from the window of the room. I reached out and tried the quiet morning outside and put on a thick coat and went out. An unprecedented banquet for tens of thousands of people, a long table banquet of more than 3,000 meters runs through the whole street, and tens of thousands of people participate. Everyone gathers together to enjoy the delicious snacks of Danzhai and share the festival of Chongyang. Of course, it has set a new world record. Before the start of the long table banquet, the Miao people's villagers sacrificed their ancestors with rice wine, glutinous rice, fish and other sacrifices to celebrate the harvest and pray for the coming year. There are many foods on the long table feast, such as ancient Tibetan meat, glutinous rice, leeks and roots, but everyone not only eats well, but also has a good time. During the toasting period, the Miaos unique hospitality customs mountain flowing water set off a wave of climax. Six or seven Miao girls sang the Miao toast songs and slanted the wine bowls to the tourists' mouths. A pot of rice wine was dumped from the top to the tourists' mouths until the tourists finished the whole pot of rice wine. until. Some tourists said that the first time I saw such a way of drinking, it was very special. After experiencing the "high mountain water", I felt that I was getting drunk.
