January 28, 2023

BẮC NINH The Đồng Kỵ firecracker procession festival has returned to Từ Sơn Town in the northern province of Bắc Ninh after two years of being postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The festival is associated with the myth of Saint Thiên Cương, who fought the Xích Quỷ invaders. It is organised annually in honour of Saint Thiên Cương’s glorious victory, who came from the Đồng Kỵ Village. It took the Đồng Kỵ villagers two months to prepare for the festival. Besides the cracker procession, the festival also features other folk games like wrestling, cock fighting and quan họ (love duet) singing.
