The highlight on this occasion will be a fireworks display while outstanding Hanoi citizens will be honoured on the day.

A scientific symposium and an exhibition on the city’s socio-economic and cultural achievements after six decades of development will also be organised.

Other events will include a cycling race around Hoan Kiem Lake, a dragon dance performance and a traditional trade village tourism festival.

In the near future, Hanoi also plans to hold activities to celebrate the 60 th anniversary of Dien Bien Phu victory.-VNA
