(VOV) – A boat racing festival was launched on Ly Son island in the central province of Quang Ngai on February 22 to mark the 2015 lunar New Year Festival (TET) – the Year of the Goat.
Before the kick-off ceremony , religious rituals were held in commemoration of ancestors and combatants who laid down their lives to defend national sovereignty over Hoang Sa (Paracel) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagoes.
The five-day festival is one of the biggest events on Ly Son island, which features cultural identities and prays for safety and prosperity of local fishermen. It is also a good chance for boat racers to show their skills and talent.
