ĐÀ NẴNG — The Christmas Lighting Ceremony will be held at French Village in the Bà Nà Hills Mountain resort in the central city on December 9th, starting a month of performances and events to celebrate the New Year.
At the ceremony, visitors can enjoy the three-metre Christmas Tree in front of the Hôtel de Paris with fun games, a buffet and drinks.
Hotel staff will perform carols in the Saint Dennis church.
The unique Christmas tree, made from more than 300 bottles of wine, will surely bring warm feelings to cold winter nights at the resort, located 20km west of Đà Nẵng city.
Visitors can also enjoy the cozy atmosphere of Christmas in two unique Bà Nà Hills French Village restaurants, L’Étable and La Crique. The restaurants are decorated for the season and offer a festive space for family and friends to gather, with live music from December 23-25.
The mountain resort also hosts a countdown-to-the-New Year at La Piscine Pool, a cozy indoor pool on top of Bà Nà Hills, on December 31st.
Christmas for kids with cancer
Also on the occasion, students from Đà Nẵng’s Đông Á College have launched a campaign to make 1,000 paper Sunflowers and paintings to raise money and gifts for kids with cancer at the city’s oncology and pediatrics hospitals.
The college also called for donations of gifts, books and toys among students at universities in Đà Nẵng during a week-long charity campaign.
All gifts and donations will be given to kids at hospitals next month in celebration of the Christmas season. — VNS
