Ever since, on the 5th of the first lunar month, Ha Noi people hold a festival to celebrate this historic victory.
A procession for the historical event's celebration commences at Khuong Thuong and ends at Dong Da Hill, which is decorated with flags and burnt incense. A grand sacrifice - offering ceremony is conducted after daybreak.
The procession includes flags, a processional parasol, palanquins with a variety of colours, and the sounds of gongs and drums. The whole procession participants walk and sometimes dance to the rhythmic accompaniment of castanets. A group of young people, dressed in martial suit, then go around and perform a play that recounts the whole period of the war.
When the procession comes to the Dong Da Hill, there is a solemn ceremony during which someone reads the story of the victory of Ky Dau praising the military genius of the national hero, Quang Trung.
