CẦN THƠ — The three-day Tân Lộc Fruit Garden Festival kicked off in Cần Thơ City’s Thốt Nốt District on Sunday.
The event, which promotes Tân Lộc fruit and the area’s tourism potential, celebrates the mid-year lunar festival on May 5.
The main activities are being held at the Tân Lộc Đông Temple, which received a certificate of recognition as a city-level cultural-historical relic during the opening ceremony.
Activities at the festival, which ends on May 30, include sports and cultural events, cake fair, fruit display competition, “chim chọi and chim hót” (fighting bird and singing bird) contests and folk song performances.
Representatives of 35 travel agencies were invited to the festival to learn about the Tân Lộc area.
The festival provides an opportunity for scientists, local farmers and companies to exchange ideas about promoting local fruits, the organisers said. — VNS
