Buffalo fighting in Son La

(VOV) -Mai Son district’s Tong Tai mountain village hosted the 6th buffalo fighting festival in Son La province on February 14, drawing a large crowd of both locals and visitors.

Buffalo fighting and horse races were once part of the Mong ethnicity’s traditional festival. It was interrupted by inefficient nomadic farming practices. Na Bo commune has organised the buffalo fighting since its restoration.

This year’s event featured 30 matches between 16 pairs of buffalos representing the commune and neighbouring areas.

The event helps preserve the province’s traditional culture and promote its tourism potential.
