The annual event, which aims to express appreciation to the gods, and pray for a safe, sound and good harvest, is being held in An Vinh and An Hai villages.
After completing the boat race, fishermen will bring boats to make ceremonial offerings to the ancestors.
The festival will last until January 30.
