Phu Tho ready for Hung Kings’ worship ceremony

The northern province of Phu Tho has worked hart to have facilities and activities ready in order to successfully organise this year’s festival to commemorate the nation’s legendary founders, the Hung Kings.


The festival will open on April 7 with the participation of several provinces nationwide, including Tuyen Quang, Hoa Binh, Nam Dinh, Quang Ngai and Dong Thap provinces, which represent the three regions of the country.
