The Trieu Khuc Village (Thanh Tri, Hanoi) Festival is held annually from the 10th to the 12th of the 1st lunar month in honour of national hero, Phung Hung (791–802). The festival starts with the bong dance; a traditional dance to worship the village’s tutelary spirits.

Then, follows the most impressive ceremony of the festival: the dragon dance. It takes place along the village’s streets and ends in the temple’s yard.

The dragon dance is generally followed by the lion dance, which is simpler than the previous dance. And finally, to conclude the festival is the flag dance. This part of the festival is meant to remind the population of the story of Phung Hung who collected talented men for his army.
