Myanmar people enjoy water sprinkle during the third day of the Thingyan water festival in Yangon, Myanmar on Sunday.

The annual water festival, known as Thingyan, is marked with large groups of people congregating to celebrate by splashing water and throwing powder at each others faces as a symbolic sign of cleansing and washing away the sins from the old year to mark the traditional New Year in countries such as Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia. This year, the Myanmar Thingyan water festival falls on 13 April and ends on 16 April.
