At the end of August and in the coming September (on the occasion of the full-moon day of the 7th lunar month and mid autumn festival), the two special festivals: Ong Quan Thanh Welcoming Festival and Mid Autumn Festival will be taken place in Phan Thiet City, Binh Thuan Province.
Ong Quan Thanh Welcoming Festival will be held in 3 days (from August the 30th to September the 1st, or the 21st to 23rd of the 7th lunar month) with many ceremonial and festive activities. The ceremonial activities will be taken place at Quan De Temple (or Ong Pagoda, Phan Thiet). The most important festive activities will be "Thanh gia xuat du" procession with the attendance of more than 1,000 people and folk arts performances in the central streets of Phan Thiet City on September the 1st. The "Nghinh Ong" festival this year will be exciting and attractive with the performance of actors and actresses masquerading as characters in ancient legends and literature.
The Mid Autumn Festival will be showcased from the 21st to 22nd of September (on the 14th and 15th of the 8th lunar month). The festival which has been used for tourism advertisement for many years is the typical, traditional, and unique activity of the locals. The festival aims at popularizing culture and tourism of the city to people, domestic and international tourists. Besides, the festival could also be a good recreation playground for the local youth. About 5,000 students with different-sized lanterns will join the parade along main streets of the city.
