Accordingly, three inspection teams will be established for regular checks, while a hotline active around the clock will be set up to receive feedback. Local shop owners will be required to post their fixed prices for all services. The 2016 Hung Kings Temple Festival is scheduled to take place from April 12-16 with a string of new activities. A street festival in Viet Tri City, a cultural concert and a firework display will be highlights of the event. In addition, there will be a number of exhibitions displaying photos, paintings, documents and objects that feature Hung Kings worshipping rituals as well as the land and people of Phu Tho, along with performances of Xoan singing and contests of making “Chung” and “Day” cakes, which are closely related to legends on the Hung Kings.
