HCMC - A street carnival will be held around Hoan Kiem Lake on July 29 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of an expanded Hanoi, according to Nhan Dan newspaper.

“The Quintessence of Hanoi - Confluence and Shine” event will be jointly held by the Hanoi Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism and the Center for Preservation and Development of Vietnamese Stage Arts.

More than 5,000 people will parade around Hoan Kiem Lake, passing Ly Thai To Square, Ba Kieu Temple, Dong Kinh Nghia Thuc Square, Ba Trieu - Hang Khay intersection and Hang Bai - Trang Tien intersection.

The parade will feature ao dai (Vietnam’s traditional dress) and non la (conical hat) shows, traditional dances like mua Lan, mua Rong, mua Lua Van Phuc, sporting activities like Wushu, Karatedo, Taekwondo, Aerobic, and jugglery.

The event is also aimed to raise public awareness of preserving cultural heritage and promote Hanoi’s traditional culture and tourism.

The entire Ha Tay Province and parts of Hoa Binh and Vinh Phuc provinces were merged into Hanoi in 2008. The capital covers more than 3,300 square kilometers, with 17 districts.
