Cow racing festival in An Giang
Cow Racing Festival has existed for a long time in the Seven Mountains Region of An Giang Province. The Festival is held on SeneDolta day of the Khmer ethnic minority people in the Mekong Delta (on the 9th and 10th of the 10th lunar month) to express gratitude toward ancestors.
Cow racing festival is organized on a flat rice field about 200 meter long and 100 meter wide. The rice filed used for cow racing festival must be muddy. The racing path for cow racing festival is 120 meter long. Before the cow racing festival, famers choose the best pairs of cows for racing. The cowboy hold the stick with sharp point when the race starts, he will hit the cows to make them run as fast as they can. Because famers use a pair of cows for cow racing festival therefore the cowboy must know how to make the two cows run at the same speed.
Brocade is a traditional Cham profession. When the girls are to the age of marrying, they all know how to weave. Scarves, robes are considered as a measure of the resourcefulness of the Cham girls.
