Cow Racing Festival
The Khmer celebrate this festival as a part of the Don Ta Ceremony in which tributes are paid to the fore-fathers. The festival is witnessed in the Tinh Bien and Tri Ton districts, and allows visitors to explore the ethnic culture of Vietnam. Guests are warmly and grandly greeted by the members of the Khmer tribe because the guests are believed to have been sent by the ancestors and after an elaborate meal and prayers at the pagoda a meticulously planned cow race is held. The event is extremely entertaining, full of color and revelry and is a day long affair.
