The festival is the highlight of a series of events to celebrate Lunar New Year 2017. It is also expected to contribute to the preservation and promotion of Lang Son’s peach blossoms, turning them into a symbol of the province.

The area is divided into two sections - scenery and peach blossom exhibition. In the first section that is arranged based on the theme Nui-Song va Hoa (Mountain-River and Blossom), visitors can contemplate the beauty of the peach blossoms that Lang Son province has been endowed with. The second section - the peach blossom exhibition - is set up on peach path decorated with 65 peach trees.

A variety of art performances are also taking place as part of the festival, including then and sli (folk songs of the ethnic Nùng in the region) singing and dragon dancing.

The festival will last until February 6.
