HCM CITY — This year HCM City’s Flower Street for the Tết Lunar New Year festival in January will be inspired by the famous Đông Hồ folk painting called “Rat’s Wedding”.

The Nguyễn Huệ flower street, which celebrates the Lunar New Year every year, will be open to tourists from 7 pm on January 22, two days before Lunar New Year to until January 28. The Year of the Rat begins on January 25.

This year, the Flower Street will include a family of rats singing and dancing to welcome spring that will greet visitors at the entrance of the street, which is held on Nguyễn Huệ Boulevard downtown.

As in previous years, the 720-metre Flower Street will stretch from City Hall on Lê Thánh Tôn Street to Tôn Đức Thắng Street by the Saigon River, with colourful floral arrangements.

Flower Street opened in 2002 and has become one of the biggest annual events in Việt Nam’s southern metropolis. It marks the coming of Tết, the Lunar New Year festival. — VNS
