A wide range of activities imbuing with cultural characteristics of ethnic groups in the Central Highlands are being organised throughout the province of Dak Nong to celebrate the lunar New Year (Tet) festival this year.

The provincial Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism in conjunction with eight districts and towns is holding ethnic cultural festivals in 146 hamlets, as part of efforts to preserve and uphold traditional culture values of local ethnic groups.

Local artists will perform various art forms such as Gong playing, folk-song singing and dancing, while traditional rituals will be revived.

These festivals are expected to give young people more understanding of traditional culture features and raise their awareness of conserving these.

Mobile film screenings are also being organised from February 2-27 to serve on-duty border guard soldiers and people living in remote areas across the province.

Meanwhile, an exhibition of photos and objects reflecting the province’s socio-economic development and the cultural tradition of various ethnic groups is taking place in Gia Nghia town.-VNA
