These activities took place at Luc Dau river, one of strategic defense lines against invaders from the ocean to Thang Long imperial city, now Hanoi, and witnessed numerous glorious victories of Vietnamese people against foreign invaders. The prayer was held for soldiers of the Tran dynasty, who sacrificed their lives for national defense, and for fallen Mongol troops in the 13th century.

In addition to the prayer for peace, the lantern parade and the seal granting ceremony are also highlights of Con Son-Kiep Bac Autumn Festival.
