Bunpimay festival is observed on April 13-16 annually to pray for good weather, health, abundant harvests and prosperity. The programme helps cheer up Lao students and tightens friendship and solidarity between the two countries.

On the occasion, the Lao Consulate General in Da Nang city presented certificates of merit to 15 Lao students for their excellent academic performance.
