After a three-year hiatus due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Phu Tho authorities resumed ceremonial activities for the festival this year, instead of organizing basic rituals without crowds as they did in 2019, 2020 and 2021. This year, the festival will include many attractions including water puppet shows, exhibitions and firework displays.
