HA GIANG (VNS) — A cultural festival of the Mong ethic minority group took place in Meo Vac District in the northernmost province of Ha Giang on Monday.
The special event, which aimed to preserve and display the cultural values and mysteries of the Mong's customs and habits at Dong Van Plateau, attracted a great number of visitors.
"After the success of the first cultural festival of the Mong group last year, this year's event hoped to build a Vietnamese culture filled with national identities as well as to promote tourism," Nguyen Cao Cuong, chairman of Meo Vac District people's committee, said.
Visitors who love to explore cultural values got a chance to take part in many unique activities such as Gau Tao festival and Khen (a wind instrument) dancing festival, and to learn and experience traditional crafts, besides enjoying folk games such as tug of war and goat fights.
This year's festival featured more than 500 artisans, local actors and athletes from 18 communes of Meo Vac District. — VNS
