Kampong Chhnang to host fifth River Festival

The Kampong Chhnang provincial authority and Tourism Ministry on Saturday discussed plans to hold the fifth River Festival in the province. If approved, the event will take place in March.

Officials said the three-day festival provides an opportunity to display various traditional home-made products, including hand-made clay pots that the province is famous for.

Provincial governor Chhour Chan Dern told The Post on Sunday that the discussions centred on plans for the festivities while the authorities still waited for official approval from Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Chan Dern said the festival will also feature boat racing, a large exhibition of artwork and various products from all over Cambodia.
