VINH LONG (VNS) – On Tuesday, nearly 3,500 students in the southern province of Vinh Long held colourful display cards to create a massive portrait of President Ho Chi Minh at the provincial stadium.
An image of the legendary General Vo Nguyen Giap was also created along with the portrait of President Ho.
The two towering portraits were showcased at a ceremony to commemorate the 39th anniversary of the Reunification Day, April 30 and the 60th anniversary of Dien Bien Phu Victory, May 7.
The event featured a grand march, which was participated by thousands of dancers, performers, and acrobats. A mass gymnastics performance was also presented at the event.
Divided into three chapters, Lich Su Hao Hung (Glorious History), Que Huong Phu Sa Trai Ngot (Land of Alluvium and Juicy Fruits), and Hoi Nhap va Phat Trien (Integration and Development), the performance was staged by 2,500 students.
The Vietnam Guinness Book of Records has also granted certificates recognising the two portraits as the country's biggest placard images and the mass gymnastics performance as the largest of its kind to be presented. –VNS
