LẠNG SƠN — The annual Peach Blossom Festival has just opened at Chi Lăng Park, in downtown Lạng Sơn City in the northern province of Lạng Sơn.
Addressing the opening ceremony on January 19, deputy chairman of Lạng Sơn’s People’s Committee Dương Xuân Huyên noted that the province hosts the annual event before the traditional Lunar New Year to praise local cultural identity, as well as preserve and develop the values of the plant.
The event aims to advertise local tourism, gradually build Lạng Sơn’s image with green tourism and peach blossoms as a tourism trademark.
“The province hopes to turn Lạng Sơn into a tourism hub with the trademark “Region of Peach Blossoms,” he said.
Various musical activities will be organised at the site, where hundreds of peach blossoms are in full bloom. A special local peach blossom named Đào Chuông, which has been raised on Mẫu Sơn Mountain with clean and cool weather all year round, will be exhibited.
Traditional festivals of local ethnic groups will be showcased as well.
The event will run till February 1, 2020. — VNS
