Con Son-Kiep Bac Spring Festival gets underway

The Con Son – Kiep Bac Spring Festival 2011 began on February 18, the 16th day of the first lunar month, in Chi Linh Town in the northern province of Hai Duong.

The festival kicked off with an incense offering ceremony to commemorate the 677th anniversary of the death of monk Huyen Quang, the third founder of the Truc Lam Buddhism sect at the Con Son – Kiep Bac historical site.

It was followed by various cultural and sporting events, including Quan Ho (love duets) and cheo (traditional opera) singing, wrestling, cock-fighting and performances of traditional arts.

The Con Son – Kiep Bac historical site is associated with the life and cause of National Hero Tran Quoc Tuan and great man of culture Nguyen Trai. It is one of the places where the Truc Lam Buddhism sect originated from during the Tran Dynasty.
