Da Nang (VNA) – A firework festival is scheduled to take place in the central city of Da Nang from April 29 to June 24.

Inspired by the local Marble Mountains, the event will take place in front of the Han River in five Saturday nights.

Eight countries, including Vietnam, the US, France and China, will compete by showing off their firework performances.

The performances will be broadcast live on the Vietnam Television.

On the sidelines, a wide range of festivals, such as an international food fair and a Cham culture festival, will be held.

Sun Group, one of the leading property investors in Vietnam, is in charge of hosting the festival. This is the first time Da Nang has allowed a private firm to organise a municipal-level festival.

The organising board expected to welcome 2 million visitors during the two-month period./.
