Hanoi’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism has planned 30 art performances in public places on September 1 and 2 to mark the 68 th National Day (Sept. 2).

There will be a wide range of shows, from music, circus, comedy to traditional operetta, all aiming to entertain and create a jubilant atmosphere for the people during the nation’s great anniversary.

Stages will be set up in areas where large numbers of people usually gather such as the Hoan Kiem Lake, parks and squares not only in downtown Hanoi but also in both inner and outside districts.

On the occasion, the Kim Dong Culture Centre in Hang Bai street, one of the modern cinema complex in the city, will offer free screening of films.-VNA
