The annual Gau Tao Festival of the Mong Ethnic people in Mai Chau district, northern Hoa Binh province opened on January 4. It is an age-old rite revealing the cultural features of the locals. The festival is held to pray for good weather and abundant crops. It also provides a chance for the elders to gather and wish each other longevity and bless their descendants with luck and health; and for girls and boys to make a date and pray for happiness all year around.
