HCM CITY — More than 200 booths are showcasing a wide variety of flowers and speciality foods at the Hiệp Phước Industrial Park Spring Flower Fair in HCM City that opened on Wednesday .
The fair with a flower gate featuring a family of dogs – marking the Year of the Dog — seeks to entertain workers at the industrial park and local residents in Nhà Bè District during the Tết (Lunar New Year) holiday.
Street art shows and đờn ca tài tử (southern folk music) will be performed throughout the fair.
A range of high-quality products will be on sale to meet the Tết shopping needs.
Nhà Bè District residents can enjoy the fair and entertainment programmes instead of having to travel to the city downtown for the Spring Fair and Flower Street, Bùi Hòa An, deputy chairman of the Nhà Bè People’s Committee, said.
The fair would be organised annually hereafter, he promised.
To run until February 15, the event is expected to attract 300,000 visitors.
The Nhà Bè People’s Committee and the Hiệp Phước Industrial Park will organise a fireworks show on February 16 to mark the Lunar New Year.
The industrial park will give gifts to 500 workers not returning home for Tết. —VNS
