HCM CITY (VNS) — HCM City cultural centres and art troupes are set to put on a slew of shows to celebrate the annual Buddhist holiday of Vu Lan, an event that eulogises motherly love celebrated through the seventh lunar month which began on Sunday.
Culinary parties and theatre shows will open this weekend at Suoi Tien and Dam Sen tourist parks in Districts 9 and 11 and take place every night during the month.
The shows will expectedly focus on people's gratitude to and appreciation of their mothers.
Some cai luong (reformed theatre – a traditional genre of theatre in south) stars will perform for free on the occasion.
The month-long programmes are expected to attract thousands of visitors, including Buddhists, from the city and neighbouring provinces. — VNS
