More than 500 people participated in the 73rd Union Day celebrations and the Manaw Festival on 12 February on the township public sports ground in Sumprabum Town of Kachin State.
Initially, Township Administrator U Zarni Toe read a message for the 73rd anniversary Union Day sent by President U Win Myint, while officials gave awards to the winners of an essay competition about the Union Day held across primary, secondary, and high schools.
Then, Township Administrator U Zarni Toe and the Traditional Committee members formally cut the ribbon and fired guns to open the Manaw Festival. At the festival, the manaw dance was performed to entertain the audience.
Showrooms of various departments were also opened at the festival to mark the 73rd anniversary Union Day. —Phon Kan (Putao) (Translated by Hay Mar)
