The three-day Thay Thim Cultural and Tourism Festival will be organised in La Gi Town in the south central province of Binh Thuan from October 18.
As an annual traditional festival, it is organised to memorise and respect forebears within the last 150 years.
Over three days, in addition to traditional ceremonies, there will be many sport, cultural events and games as well as contests on traditional customs. Many stories about the Thay Thim will be told.
Thay was a Taoist hermit who had magical powers. During his life, he and his wife helped and cured many people.
Every year, the festival attracts around 200,000 visitors. — VNS
