TUYEN QUANG  (VNS) — Several foreign art troupes will join an annual street festival held in the northern mountainous province of Tuyen Quang next week.

During the three-day event, from September 5 to 9, performers from South Korea, Laos, Belarus and China, together with local artists, will present a colourful repertoire.

As the event will coincide with the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival - which falls on September 8 this year - the festival will include a lantern parade featuring nearly 100 big-size lanterns. Created by local artisans, the lanterns are inspired by Vietnamese folk tales.

The event will also feature a gastronomy festival presenting Tuyen Quang's specialities.

The festival will also host the finale of the Miss Tuyen Quang 2014 pageant, local sport competitions and cultural exchanges.

The festival aims to introduce and promote the cultural values of the ethnic groups living in Tuyen Quang as well as the historical value of the province's Tan Trao National Relic. The site was once President Ho Chi Minh's revolutionary base against the French. — VNS
