The wedding ceremony of the Mong ethnic will be a highlight of the 2012 National Cultural, Sports and Tourism Festival Week in the northern province of Yen Bai from September 14-20.
Visitors will feel the happiness of the bride’s and bridegroom’s families and learn how the Mong prepare for the wedding banquet and worship their ancestors. They can also join the group that goes to the bride’s family to escort her to the husband’s home.
A wide range of other activities, including a mountain market fair, a traditional sports contest, and a trade-tourism exhibition displaying images of beautiful tourist sites and terraced rice fields will also be held throughout the festival.
The event aims to promote the Mu Cang Chai terraced rice fields, a national beauty spot, and the unique cultures of the indigenous people to foreign and domestic visitors.
