First lunar month big for festivals

The first lunar month has the largest number of festivals of all the calendar months, which means more visitors to the country.

The festivals include Huong Pagoda Festival in Ha Noi, Yen Tu Pagoda Festival in Quang Ninh Province, Lim Festival and Ba Chua Kho Festival in Bac Ninh Province, Tran Temple Festival in Nam Dinh Province and Chua Keo Pagoda Festival in Thai Binh Province.

Lim Festival will be held on February 12 in Tien Du District. The festival is famous for folk song performances called quan ho, which are a dialogue performance between male singers and female singers. Bamboo swinging, wrestling, human chess and weaving competitions are also on show.

The Tran Temple Festival will open on February 11 to commemorate the Kings of the Tran Dynasty (1225-1400).

The main ritual of the festival is the seal opening ceremony. — VNS
