During the event, people gather to pay homage to their ancestors and enjoy traditional singing and dancing after a year of hard work.

Leaders of Soc Trang province have paid visits to local Khmer pagodas to offer greetings on the occasion, and presented gifts to those in need.

The official praised the contributions made by the Most Venerable, other monks and Buddhist followers to local development. He urged the Buddhist dignitaries to continue to encourage followers to actively join in patriotic emulation campaigns and build a rich and prosperous Soc Trang province.
