The event, the eighth of its kind in the province, will include a wide range of activities, including an opening ceremony, low-range fireworks, and art performances by local and foreign art troupes.

It aims to spotlight the province’s culture, tourism and cuisine, particularly the Ha Long Bay, a UNESCO-recognised World Natural Heritage site.

Last year’s annual event witnessed the participation of more than 5,000 actors and actresses, and welcomed 25,000 visitors.-VNA
