Da Nang, Hoi An to host Tet festivities (08/02/18)

Da Nang, Hoi An to host Tet festivities (08/02/18)
A month-long spring festival will be held at the coastal entertainment and hospitality complex CocoBay in Da Nang from February 12 to March 11, featuring Tet (Lunar New Year) customs, folk games and traditional cuisine.

The event organisers said the festival will present family-style Tet celebrations from north, south and central Viet Nam.
As traditional Lunar New Year customs seem to be fading with the country’s rapid modernization, the event seeks to reinvigorate the celebration and attract new fans to the year’s biggest event.
The festival will include folk art performances, games, water puppet shows, calligraphy workshops and a spring market, as well as banh chung (sticky rice square cake) contests among families of different generations.
Stalls selling food and outdoor stages with musical performances and fun games will be open at the site day and night.
As scheduled, the city will present a 15-minute firework show on Lunar New Year’s Eve (February 16) at Nguyen Van Troi Bridge and the administrative centres of Lien Chieu and Hoa Vang districts at midnight.
In Hoi An, a series of events, including dancing, game shows, handicraft displays and brocade weaving performances will be held at the Precious Heritage Art Gallery Museum, An Hoi Sculpture Park, Hoang Van Thu, Nguyen Thai Hoc and Anantara Hoi An Resort on Pham Hong Thai street.
Ethnic minority groups – Ca Dong, Cor, Co Tu and Boonoong – living in districts of Tay Giang, Dong Giang, Nam Giang and Bac Tra My – will show off their performances and cultural activities in Hoi An through 2018.
The Quang Nam Ethnic Festival, which began on January 31, aims to honour the cultural values of ethnic groups in the province and promote culture to tourists visiting Hoi An.
Visitors will be able to explore the unique culture of ethnic minority groups, including folk dancing, singing and playing traditional musical instruments.
