Cow race festival was held in An Giang
Khmer people in the Mekong delta province of An Giang were preparing for their cow race festival, which took place on September 27 .

The Bay Nui festival, which dates back to a custom of cow racing during the rice cultivation season, has been held annually since 1992 in Tri Ton and Tinh Bien districts. It has expanded to include racing teams from other provinces in the Mekong delta.

This year’s festival, which was held on the occasion of the Dolta traditional festival, was expected to draw the participation of 70 cow teams from An Giang and its neighbouring province of Kien Giang.
