The Tay Son – Binh Dinh festival opened with a reenactment of a procession of Emperor Quang Trung and his civil and military mandarins in Phu Phong Town, Tay Son District .
The march included cavalry, infantry, female general Bui Thi Xuan, imperial commander-in-chief Tran Quang Dieu, and Emperor Quang Trung. The festival uses the theme “Converging and Development” and is being held on August 1-3.
Stories of the glorious feats of arms of national hero Quang Trung (Nguyen Hue) and the legendary Tay Son army spread throughout Viet Nam over 200 years ago. They struggled for independence, defending the country from invaders, and uniting the country.
The show attracted thousands of domestic and foreign visitors who gathered at the starting point at Truong Trau quay and at the destination point at Quang Trung Museum.
After the procession, Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan, Binh Dinh Province’s leaders and march participants offered flowers and incense at Tay Son Tam Kiet Temple.
