The two sisters Trung Trac and Trung Nhi led an uprising against the Han invaders from China in 40 AD. Their victory brought the liberation for Dai Viet (an old name for Vietnam) after 247 years of Chinese domination. 
Addressing the event, Vice Chairman of the municipal People's Committee  Le Hong Son stressed that this activity has been an annual meaningful tradition, aiming to introduce the country's historical and traditional villages, especially the capital of Hanoi to international friends.
