LẠNG SƠN — Thousands of locals and tourists are flocking to the first-ever Peach Blossom Festival held in the northern province of Lạng Sơn.
About 350 peach blossom plants raised in 11 districts throughout the province are exhibited in Lạng Sơn City’s downtown. The event includes art performances and lion dances on the streets.
The event will last until March 15.
Peach blossoms symbolise luck, peace and happiness. Lạng Sơn hosts various varieties of valuable and beautiful peach blossoms with different colours of flowers.
Local authorities hope the event will be a unique trademark for local tourism, making contributions to preserving and developing local peach blossom plants. — VNS
