More than 800 children from southern ethnic minorities have enjoyed a three-day cultural festival, the fifth of its kind in Ninh Thuan province, since June 17.

The festival featured art performances, a food corner, folk games and a sea-and-island support campaign, attracting the attention and delight of the children.

Ninh Thuan People’s Committee Vice Chairman Le Van Binh said the get-together offers ethnic youth opportunities to grow closer and learn from each other.

On the occasion, 40 children were awarded Vu A Dinh scholarships.

The sixth festival will be hosted by Kien Giang in 2017.-VNA
