FESTIVALS IN HA TIEN
 

THE ANNIVERSARY OF NGUYEN TRUNG TRUC


Date: 27th to 29th of the 8th lunar month
This festival is held annually at the communal house, at 14 Nguyen Cong Tru Road, Vinh Thanh Quarter, Rach Gia Town.
It is dedicated to the memory of Nguyen Trung Truc, a hero celebrated for his services in fighting against aggressors to protect the country. Before losing his life, he made a very famous statement, "Only when all the grass in Vietnam is pulled up will there be no more Vietnamese people to fight against the French aggressors."
Every year, on the anniversary of his death, thousands of visitors attend the festival and pray to Nguyen Trung Truc. The Co Hoa Festival (the ceremony of staging a procession for a throne) is held on the 28th of the 8th lunar month. The communal house also provides accommodations for the groups of visitors who attend the festival.
