Oc Bom Boc Festival

Cultural in Soc Trang

Once a year, the Khmer community from all over Vietnam and even Cambodia turns out for this festival, with longboat races on the Soc Trang River. Races are held according to the lunar calendar on the 15th day of the 10th moon (roughly in November). The races start at noon, but things get jumping in Soc Trang the evening before.
