Hai Luu Buffalo Fighting Festival 2012 opens in Vinh Phuc

Hai Luu Buffalo Fighting Festival 2012 opens in Vinh Phuc On February 7, the Hai Luu traditional buffalo fighting festival 2012 was organised in Vinh Phuc.

More than 10,000 viewers flocked to Hai Luu Stadium to see four knock-out rounds between 28 fighting buffalo from 19 hamlets. The championship is determined through the four rounds with 24 fights.

This is the 11th consecutive time the festival took place in Hai Luu Commune, after an interruption from 1947 due to the resistance wars against France and the US. Legend has it that the Hai Luu buffalo fighting festival began in the 2nd century BC, around 2,220 years ago.

The festival took place over two days on February 7th and 8th (the sixteenth and seventeenth days of the first lunar month). (Source: CPV)
