The Hoai River in the ancient town of Hoi An was a glowing spectacle Friday night as Vietnamese celebrated the Vu Lan Festival.

The festival of filial piety, observed on the 15th day of the 7th lunar month, is marked by prayers and rituals for happiness and good luck. This year, the day fell on Saturday, August 25. On Friday night, both locals and tourists took boat rides on the Hoai River, which flows alongside the ancient town of Hoi An, to release lanterns as a form of prayer.
