To kick off the event, Thanh Thuy district leaders banged drums.

According to legend, Mrs. Dinh Thi Den married Mr. Nguyen Cao Hanh but no children. One day, a golden dragon flew down into the well, gulped up water, and spewed out pearls. Mrs. Dinh Thi Den bathed in water, felt light and fragrant, became pregnant, and gave birth to Tan Vien at Lang Suong cave, which is today in Dong Trung commune, Thanh Thuy district. In Vietnamese folklore, Saint Tan Vien is a deity who helps people regulate water, recover land, educate people how to produce wet rice, hunt wild animals, and repel foreign invaders. To remember his remarkable merits, people around the country built temples to revere Tan Vien Mountain’s God and smoked incense all year. However, only Lang Suong Temple worships the full family of Saint Tan, which includes his father Nguyen Cao Hanh, his mother Dinh Thi Den, baby-sitter Ma Thi Cao Son, his wife - Princess Ngoc Hoa, and his two generals of Cao Son and Quy Minh.
